North Platte River Fishing Report 01/18/2023

North Platte Fishing Report

Includes Information on the Grey Reef, Miracle Mile, and Fremont Canyon

Thanks for tuning into your go-to North Platte River Fishing Report. Sow bugs are on the menu at the Big Horn- specifically the Halo midge. Focus on the deep water and tail outs. Also be mindful of the icy ramps and 8th street ramp closure. Fish are eating on the Swing out at the Mile. Be careful traveling out that way as road conditions are poor. The Reef is fishing simple. Focus on your main protein sources like leeches, worms, and midges. The Reef is open all the way down to Government Bridge. We hope to see you all at our fly tying night! Tie One On Tuesday a free fly tying event every Tuesday evening at Black Tooth Brewery. Check out our social media pages for the patterns we highlight each week.
