Fall fishing is finally here with a vengeance! Despite significant rainfall and less than perfect conditions in several sections of the river, the North Platte is still producing some great fishing. The lower river is really starting to shine with welcome dry fly and streamer fishing. Although, many locals know how good the fishing can be through and below town, folks not familiar are getting some good exposure to these waters with our guides as well as other outfitters in the area. Oftentimes the lower river is neglected due to the notoriety the Grey Reef section gets. Conditions on the lower river can sometimes be a bit more fickle, but this year it is staying a bit cleaner and more consistent. Not to say the upper river isn’t fishing, there is simply a little more moss to contend with the higher you go on the river. Besides that, for those of you familiar with the North Platte, it’s no secret it truly shines as a nymphery. Fall fishing breaks that tradition with improved dry fly fishing and streamer fishing. The quality of many of the fish on the lower river can be every bit as good as the upper and they are very bit as strong and active as their upper river brothers and sisters. So, if you are interested in getting to know a bit of the river a little less traveled, one of our guides would love to give you a tour.
