North Platte River

Tip of the week 

The North Platte from Rout Access to Pickeroon should fish great on foot for the rest of the season. For now expect an awesome Trico hatch from 7-8am until 11-noon. The fish will pod up and key on these bugs. It's super technical fishing but great fun. After the Trico hatch look to find fish in the faster moving water eating nymphs. The fishing should get good again in the evening with fish eating Caddis and Trico's.

Seven-day forecast 

This next week looks to be bringing us some cooler temps. Expect to see highs around the mid 50's to low 60's with intermittent rain/snow. Fish ON!

The Beaver Creek fire is still burning north/northwest of Walden. It's currently about 38,000 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! For the most up to date information on the fire check out
