North Platte River

Tip of the week 

The river has dropped and is now at an excellent level for wade fishing. Picking apart the pocket water with dry-dropper rigs as well as nymph rigs will be best. Look for quick transitions from shallow to deep water and expect the fish to be laying right off the shelves. Also keep an eye out for Trico's. You should see a good spinner fall from 9:30-noon providing very good shots at rising fish.

Seven-day forecast 

The coming week 9/21-9/27 should bring excellent fishing. The browns are getting aggressive as they prepare to spawn. Keep on the lookout for redds and please do not disturb actively spawning fish.
