3-10-14-North Platte River Flushing Flow Gray Reef 2014
FYI: In the recent Game & Fish meeting regarding TROUT BEADS they ruled that it is legal to Peg an EGG if your using a fly(i.e. rockworm) 2 inches or less below an egg.
Remember that the Grey Reef flush for the North Platte River is scheduled for March 17-26 unless it postponed again due to more winter weather. Also remember that the fishing is typically good during the flush. Usually the first day can cloud the waters a little but even the 1st day has fishable conditions. After the first day or so it can fish exceptionally well!
**”On March 17, flows in the river below Gray Reef Dam will fluctuate from 500 cfs to 4000 cfs according to the following schedule:
||GRAY REEF FLUSH OUTFLOWS (cfs)
|00:01 to 01:00 a.m.
|01:00 to 03:00 a.m.
|03:00 to 07:00 a.m.
|07:00 to 08:00 a.m.
|08:00 to 09:00 a.m.
|09:00 to 10:00 a.m.
|10:00 to midnight
This schedule will be repeated daily on March 18 through March 26. After completing the flushing flow on March 26, the flows below Gray Reef Dam will return to 500 cfs. The schedule may be modified depending on river ice conditions.
The flushing flows are expected to clean the spawning gravels of fine sediment which has accumulated over the winter. The fluctuations in the river flow will be achieved without loss of power generation and the water released from Alcova Reservoir will be restored downstream in Glendo Reservoir.”
