Default Grey Reef/North Platte

Just back from a quick one day drift on the North Platte River, with my friend and guide Jason Hamrick who owns Cowboy Drifters. After we arrived we threw sticks for the dogs for a bit. These dogs cannot get enough of the river.

We piled into one of the cabins for the night, which are super adequate and perfect to chill out in after a day of fishing. They've got full kitchens, 4 beds, full bath, HD flat screen with dish, etc. Some of the best sleeping weather anywhere!

The plentiful rainbows couldn't resist a bead, and between us we caught 40+ really nice fish including a few super strong and healthy eating 'bows in the 22"-25" range. All in all a great day of drifting with Jason and a couple other friends. We had numerous 'doubles' on as we drifted down the trophy blue ribbon tailwater Grey Reef section of the North Platte. This is an amazing river which produces an incredible number of big strong fish. I think the latest electro fish count of this section is around 7500 fish per mile! Crazy stuff folks lol. As always an amazing day and great time with Jason. He never disappoints for laughs and a great day on the water.

Nice, 20"+ bows. I bet your arms are tired from battling those big, old, pretty fish.
