North Platte River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The river is finally dropped enough to provide great wade fishing opportunities. The North Platte from Rout Access to Pickeroon should fish great on foot for the rest of the season. For now during the day Dry/ Dropper rigs consisting of any Stone or Hopper up top trailed by PMD, Caddis, and Sally nymphs will be the ticket. Look for rising fish in the evenings from 7pm til dark...

Seven-day forecast 

The coming week looks to be warm and dry but bringing clouds and possible showers in the afternoons which could be awesome fishing conditions. We expect the fishing will be best early and late in the day. Good Luck!

The Beaver Creek fire is still burning north/northwest of Walden. It's currently about 25,000 acres in size but fortunately it hasn't affected the fishing in and around the park. Our winds generally blow out of the south so we haven't had any long standing issues with smoke. Big Creek Lakes and Hog park reservoir are closed for now but there's still miles and miles of great water to fish!
