Lowering Alcova Reservoir and the Grey Reef Trophy Trout Season

Grey Reef is the ultra-tailwater. This is a phrase we use to describe what the Grey Reef section of the North Platte River is and why it is such a consistent, productive, and trophy class fishery.

Bring on the summer!

We had some big thunderstorms roll through the area last night and conditions below Government Bridge this morning were poor.  But it should recover quickly with Grey Reef flows at 3,600cfs.  Fishing on Grey Reef remains good as we enter the “in between” period of predominant hatches.  BWO’s have more or less wrapped it up and PMDs, caddis and sallies… Read More
