Current Streamflow @ Upper North Platte: 302 cfs

Flows on the North Platte are up a little bit for this time of year and the fishing's been good. Midges have been hatching pretty consistently throughout the canyon. Fishing with smaller midge dries and nymphs in the #18-22 size range has producing fish.  The Blue Wing hatch has been consistent up here as well. Fishing a film critic BWO or a extended body BWO in sizes 18-22 is a good option as well.


This time of year, don't be afraid to throw some meat.  Make sure to cover lots of water, but fishing Dungeons in a variety of colors, sparkle minnows, and Peanut Envy's will all move fish on the right day.
