Comments / Grey Reef Guide Reports

9-15-14 Upper sections still cloudy from reservoirs turning over. However clarity improves as you go down river. Still plenty of fish being caught... caddis, red rock worm, leeches, san jaun worm, prince nymphs, caddis emergers. On cloudy windless days you will find BWO's hatching. These hatches not provide great dry fly fishing, but also pull the fish over to the banks so try streamers as well.

North Platte River Video Report

Sorry it's been awhiles since the last update, I was away on vacation. Anyhow in talking with the guides fishing still continues to be good. Great Trico hatches in the morning's then switching over to caddis patterns in the afternoons. I think there must be some weeds plugging up the bureau of rec flow gauge so not sure what the current flows are. Will update as soon as we find out.

7-31-14 Grey Reef fly fishing guide video report

Flows have dropped back to 2000 cfs, not sure if they will keep dropping but we will keep an eye on it. Fishing great with Tricos early morning followed by caddis, pmd's and yellow sallies in the afternoon. Running shallow rigs looking for fish in the faster/cooler oxygenated water.

7-24-2014 Flows brought back to 2500CFS last couple days. Fishing is still awesome, especially in the upper section. You can catch the Trico hatch in the morning with some good dry fly activity especially if it is calm and or cloudy. The remainder of the day folks are fishing various ways.... Hopper/dropper, nymphing with red annelid, caddis, yellow sallies and pmds and streamer fishing with vanilla bugger or bite me buggers.

6-4-14 Flows jumped 100 cfs to 600cfs so the beginning of higher flows may be coming. Good news as I fished below Government Bridge last couple of days and the water is getting warm fast. Otherwise fishing is good to excellent, but may be off a little each day they raise the flows. Check back for this weeks video report Thursday night.
