North Platte River, Colorado Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Look for clarity and warmer water temps to find active fish. Nymphing with a stonefly and pink worm around structure and softer water should produce some solid fish. Throwing some streamers along the bank or at heavy structure should find some fish as well.
