We are on a great run of dry fly fishing in Central Wyoming. Grey Reef has been giving up solid fish to the surface and the strip. Streamers have also been productive. Now is the time if you like to cast to risers and then pound banks and dead drift when you need a break. The dry fly gig will be solid through at least mid October. Grey Reef conditions are very clear with some suspended debris. Check the flows on the chart below. Once you get lower on the North Platte River it is very congested with “floaties”. Don’t torment yourself with trying to fish through Casper and below to Glenrock, WY. It is traditional Grey Reef time and the fish won’t disappoint. Miracle Mile is also fishing and worth it although congested with anglers and hunters to some degree.
Today we have cast and blast trips out, big game and fishing trips. Our elk hunters have been in them but yet to knock an arrow. Sage Grouse were plentiful yesterday and the day was capped with dry fly fishing. We are looking ahead a few days to early season waterfowl and have guides on tap for those trips. Don’t forget, our neighbor, Riverbend Roosters is open for pheasant preserve hunts. Come fish and stay with us and spend a half day shooting pheasants…all right in Alcova Wyoming.
The trophy season is fast approaching. The last week of October and first 2 weeks of November have been THE window the past few seasons. Bring big rods and stamina. Grey Reef’s biguns will be on the prowl for a well placed streamer.
Waterfowl Hunts for the fall and winter season? It doesn’t get any better than Wyobraska Waterfowl and their prime Eastern Wyoming and Western Nebraska fields. They have secured more coveted riverfront with a warm water slough, a pond and cornfields for the green heads and Canada Geese. Snow Geese is their late season specialty so get on the list pronto! New luxury blinds are under construction and will be planted before the season kicks off.
