Central Wyoming Fly Fishing is excellent and this won’t change. Alcova did get a blasting of heavy , wet snow and it is still coming down. This will continue the poor water conditions below Government Bridge. But, the Grey Reef section of the North Platte River should hold strong. These events can create a muddy runoff into Grey Reef Reservoir and that has been known to shut things down for a day or so. The snowpack #s for the North Platte River drainage are excellent and getting stronger. We should probably expect a bump in flows in the next couple weeks. That won’t hurt our feelings at all.
Miracle Mile and Fremont fly fishing reports are good. Road conditions to Miracle Mile will again be poor. Miracle Mile has picked up a touch over the slower production of the past couple weeks. Rigs at all 3 venues have been PSL, scuds, deep purple, foam wing rs2 and Mayhem midges. Streamers are getting limited attention but they do get noticed…keep them low and slow.
The spawn is on and this means fish need our help to continue Grey Reef’s legendary quality. Please don’t target spawning fish and don’t wade in and through the redds. The Wy Game and Fish released press that said a bead placed no more than 2″ above a fly isn’t illegal BUT snagging fish is illegal.
