GREY REEF FISHING REPORT: 8/7/2018

Grey Reef-Casper: 10/10
The Cowboy Drifters Grey Reef Fishing Report says UNBEATABLE! Truly as good as a trout fishery can be. Flows dropped to 2200 cfs. and clear! With an epic hopper crop, fish are hunting big meals. 4 Browns over 25″ have been hooked on big foam hoppers in the past week one of which made it to the net and taped just over 28″. Diesel even made a trip up from the deep to snatch a Hopper!
Tricos are cranking up which has the fish looking up. PMD’s, Yellow Sallies, and Caddis are all getting eaten on the surface. Like the Mile concentrate your casts in the rocky riffles (2-3 ft) on banks or edges that drop off into deeper runs, especially in the heat of the day. Again, you do not need to see risers or bugs on the surface to be successful. The fish are there waiting for food sources to come to them.
Under an indicator:
Deeper the better! Tricos, PMD’s, RS2’s, Sallies, and Worms. If you aren’t catching fish nymphing, add length, add weight, and fish the deepest water you can find. Keep an eye on the growing moss though. However, when you can catch huge fish on hoppers why throw anything else 😁
The fishing right now happens once a decade if not longer so please treat yourself to a trip of a lifetime, give us a call, and we’ll do the rest. It’s as easy as showing up.
