Check back regularly for updated Grey Reef River Flows. Why Fly Grey Reef? If you’re picturing the classic western fly fishing experience; open skies from horizon to horizon, big, wild trout, and plenty of solitude, fly fishing on the Grey Reef tailwaters won’t disappoint.
Tail waters are known as great trout habitat, and the entire North Platte from Grey Reef to 70 miles downstream is first and foremost a trout fishery. The Reef has been managed with flushing flows, and fishing restrictions to produce a thriving trout population and some of the best trout fishing in the lower US.
With our private land holdings, and lodging adjacent to Grey Reef you will enjoy exceptional access to the river, freedom to wade fish whenever you like, and most likely be the first fisherman out on the water.
Rainbows make up over 90% of the fish at the Reef. With over 9,000 fish per mile in 2013, the potential for hooking a ten pound fish is high. Grey Reef is known for its easy going nature and the versatility to support all levels of expertise. It’s a very easy river for a beginner, but can be challenging for an angler looking to dry fly fish, nymph fish, or streamer fish for large trout.
