Default Back from the N. Platte

Just finished up a 3 day trip fishing the N. Platte. We were able to fish the mile, fremont canyon, and grey reef. Flows were very high at every location, but we were able to find enough fishable water to wade. We didn't end up catching anything huge, but caught plenty of good, quality, hard fighting fish. The mile was very slow, so we moved to the reef to fish the remaining 1.5 days. This was a good choice, as we caught numerous fish, without moving very far downstream from the dam. On a more serious note, be careful wading out there guys. On Monday afternoon, we found out that a fisherman had falling in at the mile and drown. We were maybe half a mile from where he fell in and had no clue that anything had even happened until we talked to one of the guys that pulled him out of the river later that afternoon. The guy was only 32. It really made the 4 of us think more carefully about where we were wading. Here are just a few of hundreds of pictures of the trip. Enjoy.

Very nice, looks like an awesome trip! Great to see you guys hook into so quality fish, congrats. I was looking on the North Platte Fly shop web site today and noted the flows have increased from 900 cfs to 2,600 cfs so it definitely makes a difference in wading. Sorry to hear about the fly fisherman that didn't survive.

Sweet! I bet the beard helped you catch fish. I particularly liked the fish with rubber lips the best. I met a new friend here in town the other day that was telling me about Freemont canyon and what great fishing it was. He proceeded to show me pictures of a 10ft wide creek with really big trouts. He told me he would take me there if I took him to chase some carp. DEAL!!!

Does anyone have a newspaper article link to the drowning death? I've been searching but haven't found one yet?
