Latest Update: 6/22/2018
Current Streamflow @ Upper North Platte: 507 cfs
The Upper North Platte has experienced a bump in flows from the recent rain we have experienced. This certainly has been a blessing as flows were starting to dwindle before the storm. Flows are on their way down since the storm and will provide great fishing conditions. The salmon fly hatch has started to taper off in the canyon, but with that comes a multitude of other bugs becoming more present. Golden stones as well as Caddis and PMDs are the main hatches we have been seeing. Terrestrials have become more prevalent as well with the warmer weather. The recent bump in flows has extended our float season and we still have days available for the coming couple weeks. If you would like to book a float on the Upper Platte give us a call at the old town shop!
