Fishing Grey Reef, Alcova Wyoming:

Pat Dorsey, Bob Dye and I fish Grey Reef every March with Trent and Eric owners of the North Platte Lodge and Fly Shop. We go up early in the season because is the time we have to get away before things really get busy at the Blue Quill Angler.  We stay at the North Platte Lodge which is just 1/4 mile from the put in just below Alcova Dam. This year we went in mid March for 2 1/2 days. We left Denver on Sunday am around 10:00 am and were fishing by 3: pm that afternoon.  Although it was cold and windy the fishing was outstanding. We floated the section from right below the Dam down for many miles. Trent and Erik have leased  of river right so we were priviledged to get out and wade allot of private water. Productive patterns were egg flies, Dorseys Mercury Black Beauty, Bob’s Pearl Jam, Olive Jam amd Red Jam, Perrywinkles, Rabbit Fur Leaches, and other small midge patterns.  It was windy and cold but the opportunity to catch very nice trout, most of them from 18-22 inches, and out winter fishing gear, kept us running up and down the river like little kids.
