Had a fantastic time at the North Platte Great Escape property. So cool to drive down the ranch road onto the property, and the drive to Beat 2's parking is pretty fun going across a couple streams/channels. Beautiful property, saw several bald eagles scanning the river for trout like we were.
Did not have success nymphing, but I do not think my leader was long enough or was using enough split shot for the deeper holes. Had lots of success with streamers, mainly a black articulated streamer I got from Hack's Tackle in Saratoga nearby.
Very excited to return here in the future. Biggest fish I caught was about a 13" brown so nothing too big, but caught plenty of fish in the 10" range. Hopefully next time will find some bigger fish!
A great vacation spot to catch eager trout. I had the opportunity to fish here with Fishing The Good Fight and it was awesome catching some many fish. I highly recommend this location.
My fishing companion and I had a very successful day fishing Beat 2 on the North Platte on September 30. Following the advice of a local fisherman we ran into who has been fishing the upper North Platte his entire life, we fished exclusively with an assortment of streamers such as the Rusty Trombone, Goldie, Platte River Spider and Micro Dungeon. They all worked well for us.
Rarewaters very generously accomodated us for a raincheck date on Day 2 as cold rainy weather set in. All in all, an excellent experience with great fishing and great customer service. We look forward to fishing the North Platte again soon.
Great piece of water. A ton of fish and amazing views.
Excellent day! Property Manager and fly shop in Carbondale were super helpful.
It was a Creek day! I lost count, big healthy bows / cutbows eating hoppers. Started with a dry / dropper rig and ultimately just stayed with a hopper to hug the banks. Tan / Purple and Pink were the go to colors.
Was on the Fork for less than an hour, more to cool off. The Creek sight fishing was too much fun.
Really enjoyable property.
