Central Wyoming fly fishing is as good as it gets. Our anglers and guides are fishing dry flies start to finish if they choose. The baetis, caddis and tricos are strong. Crane Flies are not to be ignored. Streamer activity has also been well worth the effort and as Grey Reef progresses toward November that fever will escalate to prime status. Trophy Season is a narrow window through mid-November. That doesn’t mean they aren’t available all year but history shows us when the bulk of the success happens. As the eves get cooler expect a transition to midges and a thinning of the fair-weather anglers. Winter is no slouch at Grey Reef. Scratch that itch with a warm cottage and the best water beginning just a minute away.
Don’t be afraid of the season change. It is still an excellent time to fish Grey Reef and Miracle Mile. Many of us feel it is the BEST time to fish the North Platte River. Very wadable flows of 500cfs, clear water and heavily foraging trout are more ingredients than needed for a delicious trip.
Looking forward to 2018 it is not too early to secure your dates. The North Platte Lodge is the pinnacle of experience, access and convenience. Our corporate program has been very well received due to the high quality food, fishing and facility coupled with a laid back and personal atmosphere. We are rolling into year 20. We can’t believe is has been 20 season of memorable Grey Reef fishing. Come celebrate with us!
We generally only focus on a short bird hunting window with early season waterfowl and sage grouse. The sage grouse season was a success and has now closed and waterfowl hunts have also been productive, thus far. Our new big game program has been equally successful. Archery elk tags filled and we are looking forward to antelope, deer and elk hunters over the coming weeks. Our bird hunting and big game hunting properties rival our exclusive private fishing access. This is a feature we will not skimp on. There is a significant difference when you have that privilege. Access matters.
