North Platte River Trout Fishing | Summer Fly Fishing WY

  What an amazing Spring this was on the North Platte River!  For all who fished the river this Spring, you know Grey Reef, Fremont Canyon and the Miracle Mile are truly special places.

North Platte River Spring Fly Fishing | April on the North Platte

miracle-mile-walleye Minturn Anglers

The North Platte River in Central Wyoming is fishing as well as any of us can remember and it continues to get better everyday. You’d be hard pressed to find a river in the lower 48 fishing as well for numbers of fish and size of fish right now. Whether you are floating or wading, it is pretty hard not to have a banner day (even if you have never fished the North Platte River). Read More

We are picking up more and more fish on hoppers everyday, but it still feels like we are a week or two away from full on hopper frenzy.  Amy’s Ant, Chernobyls, and foamulators continue to be the fly of choice for me.   That said, there is a variety of other dry action to be had as well.  The morning trico fishing has been steady on the upper three miles and much of the slackwater Read More

North Platte Grey Reef Fishing Report August

The weather has been fantastic here in Central, WY.  Aside from one rainstorm  last Wednesday evening (8/4/11) that left the river off color for a few days from Government Bridge down, the river has been looking good.  The upper river from Grey Reef to lusby has some weeds but it is by no means unfishable. A lot less weeds from Government Bridge to Casper.   As for the fishing, the hoppers are still a little Read More

Grey Reef Spring Fly Fishing | N. Platte Best Fishing Season

This was my last week on the Reef and we had some exceptional days on the water.  Clients Jim Huggins and good friend Rich from Utah boated fish all day long on May 6th.  I had Glenn Petty and Brandon Womble for two days on the 7th and 8th and we did well despite some extreme Wyoming wind.  Windy days just make it hard to achieve a prolonged drift which I feel is extremely vital Read More
