Upper North Platte River Fishing Report

Fishing Conditions

The upper North Platte River has plenty of Tricos. Look for pods of trout along the edges, sipping these tiny spinners. Technical fishing, but a blast! Other good patterns include red San Juan Worms, Pink Squirmies, Yellow Sally nymphs, Flashback Bead Head Hare’s Ears, Princes, Posse Buggers, and of course, the venerable Pat’s Rubber Legs. Dries include Caddis, Yellow Sallies, Pale Morning Duns, Chubby Chernobyls, and Parachute Adams. For a streamer this time of the year, a Platte River Spider is tough to beat. Also, consider fishing a Chubby, Stimulator, Amy’s Ant, or hopper (for an indicator) with a Trico tied on the end.
