MIRACLE MILE FISHING REPORT
Miracle Mile fishing report below is a free service provided by our shop guides and customers. The Miracle Mile report will be updated as often as needed and we will always change the reports if any sudden changes should occur. However please understand that sudden storms can often change conditions overnight before we can change the report. We welcome any Miracle Mile fishing reports that you would like to provide.
Fishing on all our permitted waters is in play!We had a rain event last week on the Reef, but waters are clearing, and fishing has been great!The fish are getting super buggy and sliding up into the fast water, which is way more fun to fish! The Mile is kicking out some great fish and the stones have shown!We are super busy and putting great trips out the door every day!
The Mile bugs have been Stoneflies, Chubby’s, purple Back Scuds, PMD’s, and Mayhem Midges in purple and gray.
The Miracle Mile remains solid. We have been taking fish on the regular basis on leeches as well as midges in black and grey. The old stand by of the rock worms and San Juan worms are also getting some grabs. Please be mindful of the spawning fish and watch where you wade as there are a lot of fish on the redds right now.
6-16-20 Mile is high but fishing well
3-17-20 CoronaVirus and the Platte River Fly Shop. We have reduced staff hours but we are still filling orders with normal business hours. From time to time we do drop ship orders directly from the manufacturer, but some of are suppliers are shutting down their warehouses. If your order will be delayed for any reason, we will contact you. You are not going to catch the disease by being outdoors, so get out there and do a little fly fishing to reduce the anxiety/stress factor. If any of this changes, we will make another post.
10-30-19 The Browns are finally showing up in good numbers at the Mile. Brightly colored streamers, egg patterns and san jaun worms will be best lookiing for them. Otherwise midges, egg patterns, leeches, and scuds will be the best patterns throughout the winter. This will be our last report until spring unless something major happens.

8-12-19 Tricos and Caddis are the predominant hatches
7-16-19 Flows are finally dropping out at the Mile down to 3200 and dropping. Golden Stones, Yellow Sallies and Caddis should be the main bugs.
6-25-2019 Flows at the Mile are still in runoff stage at 5000 cfs, but that does cause some nice side channels to fish. Golden Stones should start in next couple weeks. Other than that try scuds, san juan worms, yellow sallies, caddis and pmd's.

4-8-19 The mile is picking up with warmer spring temps. Scuds, egg patterns, midges and annelids are the hot patterns. The BWO's will start in a week or two. Streamer action has been hit or miss.
10-16-18 Reports of nice Browns now being caught at the MIle. Bright colored flies like glo bugs, san juan worms, egg sucking leeches have been working the bes.
9-23-18 The Mile is looking good. Fished it yesterday using Pat's Rubber legs, BWO's, San Juan Worms, Caddis......did best on Mercury Beadhead Grey Midge. Still not much Brown Trout action yet. I expect it will be towards end of October before action really heats up.
