Central Wyoming experienced good fly fishing but the past couple days were pretty damp and we even had some drainages adding a bit of mud to the river. Our 2400cfs cleared out the burps in no time. Grey Reef had no issue but it was off color below Government Bridge and murky into Casper. 2400cfs. The spring baetis hatch was thick but getting them to eat your imitation wasn’t easy. Streamer fishing was tough and a worm or leech was a solid bet. This week and we will be back to crazy spring fishing on emerger rigs no doubt. PLUS the weather looks excellent with temps around 60 and little to no wind.
Have you checked out the all new Reef Fly Shop web site? If not, go! Reports page has current fishing report, stream flow graphs and weather all displayed and too easy not to use. We have always provided the most up to date reports but now it is even better. This site is in the process of a rebuild and we have lucked out to get one of the fly fishing industry’s brightest stars to give us a hand with the content. The new site will clarify that the North Platte Lodge is the original and only lodge at Grey Reef. It is the only facility that is built as a lodge on the entire river. Each guest room has a private bathroom inside of a spacious room with 2 Queen beds. We are the only facility with a state of the art commercial kitchen. We are a true full service operation with all inclusive lodging, meals and fishing. We have a river shuttle service and drift boat rentals, we have the only fly shop at Grey Reef and on the river(with awesome logo gear). We offer the nightly vacation cottages that are wildly popular due to their modern and luxurious appointments in addition to being the only Grey Reef cabins. I forgot to mention RV sites and the largest full time professional guide staff. This crew is as good as they come and their definition of a Grey Reef fly fishing experience is clearly different than what has become the norm. Last but not least is private access. We are in a league of our own when it comes to the quantity and quality of the access that is exclusively available to our guests and guides.
