A nice rainbow!

A nice rainbow!

Yes it’s that time again; TROUT TIME.  Time to start thinking about that early season opportunity to plug some BIG fish on our tailwaters or look forward to this summer on the Upper North Platte.

Fishing on Grey Reef and the Bighorn river is HOT right now with the rainbow spawn currently underway and the fish stacked in the deeper runs feeding heavily.  Water levels are low around 500 cfs. on both sections and weeds still a problem but fish are being taken with streamers and drys.

The Upper North Platte watershed currently has 80% of average snowfall accumulated and the same amount in water content keeping us much more enthusiastic about this season compared to the last.  Anything can happen in the next couple of months but the season is shaping up to be a good one evident by the way May and June are booking up.

Tight lines, Steve
