Each year RIGS Fly Shop takes our fishing guides to explore a new region and have a little fun after a busy season of guiding.
This year we head to the Grey Reef in Wyoming, hope to stop by and say hi to the guys at Wyoming Anglers and Crazy Rainbow Fly Shop and of-course catch some big rainbows!
Description from Wyoming Anglers- Considered one of the best rainbow trout fisheries in the country, the Grey Reef tailwater is well known for its impressive number of fish and particularly large ones. Fish here average 16-20 inches and plenty of fish in the 5 to 10 pound range. This stretch of the North Platte River is almost entirely privately held which keeps the pressure low. The most recent fish count shows approximately 8000 fish per mile.
This tail water is home to trophy rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout without the pressure or traffic associated with many popular tail waters today. The flush and flow management, coupled with the artificial fly and lure only regulations, have produced the best wild rainbow trout fishery in the West.
