November on the North Platte

Took a quick trip to the North Platte this past weekend. Amazing weather for this time of year. Not the greatest fishing but it was worth the drive. Fished up on the Miracle Mile for the first time. The Mile has some great runs and pools. Hooked a big brown on the spey rod in the first 5 minutes of fishing. The tippet broke and I might have muttered a few expletives.

Fished the next day just above Casper. We floated 8.8 miles of river. Fishing was tough. Most fish took streamers. Nymphing should have been productive, but we couldn't seem to find the right fly.

Here are a couple of photos from the trip--

Wow! That is a PIG brown. I would like to catch that one on a small creek where I fish. =)
