The river is open and at a nice level. We expect the river flows to fluctuate with the weather. On warmer days expect the river levels to jump and on colder days expect the river to be lower and clear. Nymphing and streamer fishing will be the ticket over the next couple weeks. Look for fish in the slower and deeper pools until water temps start to rise.
The 7 day outlook looks to be bringing a few rain showers mixed with intermittent snow. We expect the main stem of the North Platte to hold steady and clear up with the colder weather.
