Runoff is in full swing on the upper North Platte. The water has been on the rise with the rain and snow melt we have been seeing. The water will be a bit off color until it comes back down after runoff. With the dirty water it is important to throw larger stoneflies and attractor patterns so the fish can see them. San juan worms and leeches in different colors are always a good option in high water. The fish are going to be sitting close to the banks and behind boulders where they can get out of the fast current. If you have any questions about fishing high water or the upper North Platte, give us a shout!
