We will update these reports as often as necessary to keep our fellow anglers in tune with changes.

Current Streamflow Upper North Platte: 794 cfs

Flows have been fluctuating since we saw this area ice off. Water temperatures are cold with melting ice but the bump in flows have made fish more active throughout the middle part of the day when temps are highest. Be prepared with a variety of caddis, baetis, worms, and stoneflies up here. Make sure to have some small Baetis dries too just in case you get caught in a hatch, and of course a bunch of streamers.
