Grey Reef flush-2015

The Grey Reef flush began at midnight.  It will probably be a bit off color but by 10 am the flows will be back down to 500cfs. This is when the upper Grey Reef is usually fishable again.  The fishing after the 1st day of the flush is usually great as the high flows kick up a lot of food for the fish. Please keep in mind that it takes a while for the sections downstream of the upper Grey Reef to drop to it’s  normal flows.

-Grey Reef Flush Information from the Bureau of Reclamation

MILLS, Wyo. — The Bureau of Reclamation, in response to a request from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, has scheduled a series of fluctuating flows in the North Platte River downstream of Gray Reef Dam, according to Deputy Area Manager Lyle Myler.

“The purpose of the fluctuations is to improve trout reproduction in the river,” Myler said. This spring, the Wyoming Game & Fish has requested flows for ten consecutive days. The Wyoming Game & Fish will collect data before, during, and after the flushing flow in order to evaluate its effectiveness.

On March 16, flows in the river below Gray Reef Dam will fluctuate from 500 cfs to 4000 cfs according to the following schedule:

HOURS GRAY REEF OUTFLOWS (cfs)
00:01 to 01:00 a.m. 500
01:00 to 03:00 a.m. 2000
03:00 to 07:00 a.m. 4000
07:00 to 08:00 a.m. 3000
08:00 to 09:00 a.m. 2000
09:00 to 10:00 a.m. 1000
10:00 to midnight 500

This schedule will be repeated daily on March 16 through March 25. After completing the flushing flow on March 25, 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.

The public is urged to use caution during this period of rapid fluctuation of flows below Gray Reef Dam.

Grey Reef Fishing Report March 15th 2015

Boy was it windy today!  But the fishing was still HOT! Fishing the soft slow tailouts and the inside seams with light weight(bb in tin) was the trick.  Remember that when the wind blows, leeches are a great fly.  The wind moves the leech and gives it natural action! Thanks to guide Oliver Ashenhurst for the Grey Reef fishing report and his hard work despite difficult winds to make every trip out a success!

Flies:

  • red rock worms size 14
  • purple rock worms size 14
  • red san wons size 12
  • brown pine squirrel leeches size 10 & 12

Gray Reef Report Wy.

Really nice weather today! This coming week is supposed to be even nicer! Early on small tan scuds seemed to be the ticket.  Later we had luck with red and purple rock worms, brown leech, and a couple on a WD-40 and a zebra midge. Very little midge hatch activity today, it seems like they have liked the overcast days.

Gray Reef Spring Flush 2015

The flushing flows have been scheduled for March 9 -18.  Flows will cycle between 500 cfs to 4000 cfs daily during the 10 day period.  While scheduled, river ice conditions may require the schedule to be modified.  They usually crank it up at night and have it dropped back to normal by 9 am or so.   Day 1 of the flush can really move mud and sediment.  This causes the river to get blown out.  Although dirty the upper Gray Reef can still be somewhat fishable.  After this first day it gets much clearer and usually fish’s good.  Usually by day 3 the fishing is excellent! The flush really stirs up the food and presents good opportunities that you don’t have other times of year!

Fishing during the flush presents some very interesting opportunities that are not available any other time of year.

We had 2 Gray Reef fishing guides out today.  The day was about as nice of day as a guy could have in Feb.  There wasn’t a lick of wind.  Of course if you know Casper, you know we don’t even count 10 mph wind.  But it didn’t feel like it even blew 5mph today.  We started late as we knew the temps would take a bit to warm up. We were on the water by 9:30.  We were picking up a fish here and there.  But by 10:30 it heated up and the fish were super active and almost every run was producing fish.

Remember if your trying to get in the most economical fly fishing vacation, now is the time! $275 full days in February, then normal winter rate of $325 for March. Text, call, or email us for openings or info.  307.267.5161 or  info@WyomingAnglers.com

Grey Reef Report

Hey Luke- Just chiming in with some productive flies for today.

  1.  size 20 tan scud
  2. size 16 red rock worm
  3. size 16 purple rock worm
  4. size 12 brown pine squirrel leech

We got some snow today, obviously, but that didn’t seem to put a damper on the fishing.  Nymphing was solid, top to bottom.  I took an old co worker, Kris, and his brother in law, Nick, who did not have much experience fly fishing, but within 5 minutes we were into fish, having a good time.  No shame in that!

take care,

Matt

The Grey Reef has been fishing like it’s April! For those of you who don’t know what April fish’s like, it’s ridiculous.  Days of fishing where you hook fish every time your flies hit the water. Today we had many runs that we would back row and consistently catch fish every drift through!  Steve remembered forgetting how many fish he had caught by the 3rd hole.  And I remember the guys saying in shock multiple times ” Wow what
