Miracle Mile Fishing Report: 

June 28 2024:

Miracle Mile is running about 2600 cfs and the fishing has been pretty decent! Leeches, worms, PMDs, and caddis have all been successful. We are starting to see some golden stones, so don’t be afraid to thrown some stone fly patterns.

April 12 2024:

Sorry for the delay in getting reports out, there has been a website malfunction, but we are back in business. Hope everyone has been enjoying 2024 so far. I know we have. It has been a great year so far. Tame winter and the spring has started off good! We have been seeing some warmer temps. It is 65 right now. Couldn’t ask for better conditions. The flows are running around 1000CFS and mostly clear. Your looking at your typical spring meal, leeches, worms, and midges. Pick a nice day, give us a call and lets fish! There are some spawning fish, so please be aware of redds and make sure that you aren’t fishing them. Please educate others if you see them fishing redds. If we all want this fishery to stay healthy then lets work together and do our part.

November 14 2023: 

We love fishing the Miracle Mile at this time of year! It is running at 560 CFS and the fishing has been fair to good. There has definitely been some takes on streamers, but nymphing is the name of the game right now. As expected, they are munching on eggs, leeches, worms, midges and some baetis in the afternoon. We have seen some big browns which makes this time of year exciting. Browns are starting to spawn, so please keep that in mind when your fishing. Lets work on maintaining a healthy fishery. Stay off of the redds, and if you see others fishing redds, spread the word and educate them on the importance and long term effects! Tomorrow our rates officially drop for the shoulder season. $100 off of full days and $75 off of 1/2 days. How does good fishing, less people and low rates sound to you? Take advantage of it! Keep your eyes peeled for our newsletter coming out, as we are running a Black Friday Special. If you haven’t subscribed and are interested in the special, give us a call at 307-267-5161.

August 31 2023: 

Miracle mile has been fishing well. Flows are running at about 1400 CFS and clarity is good with some floating moss. If you are thinking about fishing the mile, make sure to have caddis patterns, worms and leeches on hand.

July 10 2023: 

Miracle mile is running at about 2500 cfs right now and is fishing good. We are definitely seeing some heads coming up in early mornings and evenings eating big dries. Great time to throw some stonefly patterns! As far as nymphing goes, I would come prepared with some PMDs, yellow sallies, and caddis patterns such as Splitcase PMD, Crust Nymph PMD, Birds Nest Caddis, and Jacksons Sally.

April 26 2023: 

The mile is flowing at 2800 cfs right now and if we had to bet on it, guessing it is expected to continue to go up. It’s the same spring meals. You might not do numbers out there, but you can always find a few nice fish to tangle with.

March 16 2023:

There is no update at this time. Driving to the mile is not advised.


The Mile still a little moss but the fishing has been mostly good! Browns are spawning so please stay off the reds and educate other fisherman if they aren’t aware. Let’s preserve our fisheries for our future generations!  Normal stuff this time of year is working. Pine squirrel leech in black and brown, black mayhem midge, black juju midge, grey Rs2, & red annelid. 6 to 8 ft indicator to weight with an ab or 2 bbs. Still finding fish off the shelves, seams and in the tail outs.

1/15/21: The Miracle Mile is fishing like it normally does this time of year. Hit them right on the nose and they will eat it. Midges, Red San Juans, eggs.

July 10th 2019

The stones are ON! Miracle Mile is high but has had loads of golden stones flying around over the past several days and the fish are loving it! The early mornings and late evenings have seen plenty of heads coming up to eat big dry flies in fast water. On top of this the nymphing has been fairly consistent. The water above the bridge is producing a few browns and some decent rainbows on worms and pat’s rubber legs. Below the bridge there are plenty of big fish to be had. The softer currents have fished a bit better, it is certainly not gang busters but you can find fish on rubber legs, leeches, and worms running 6ft to two abs. It is BIG water on the Mile right now, wading is highly difficult but most of the water is accessible via a boat.

There are thousands of hoppers on the banks right now and our water temps have kept the moss at bay meaning that the rest of July through October could have some tremendously fun fishing in it.

April 9th 2019- The fishing has been pretty solid! Same spring meals. Eggs, leach, worms, and midges. We have been having many warm summer like days in the 50s and 60s with low winds. Then here and there you will have a snow day or a windy day. But the harsh days are becoming less and less the norm. The fish are hungry and willing to eat! Come join us! Be sure to check the roads before you head out to the Mile. We are getting moisture now and the roads will be slippery for a day or two.

March 1st 2019 – The winter is almost over and the fish are ready and willing to eat! Guides are coming back in with great reports! Nymph fishing has been excellent! No fish up eating on the surface. Bugs of choice are Red San Juans, red rock worms, natural pine squirrel leeches, egg patterns, and black midges.

03/03/2017- Here is your up to date Miracle Mile fishing report. The Miracle Mile has been fishing well especially after 9 AM. We have had some strong spring winds.

11/2/16- The Miracle Mile is fishing very well. The best way to fish this is with a guide who knows the water. It is really low this time of year. Nymphing is well most of the time, no dry fly fishing and the streamer bits isn’t hot but you can get some slabs if your patient.

10/3/16- The Miracle Mile is fishing well! It’s the normal tea coler as always in the fall but the Mile still fishs well with water this color. Try black midges in the morning with a red san juan or a pats rubber legs. And try a replacing the midge with small bwo variation when the midge quits working. Look towards fishing the deeper tailouts and depper riffles as the water temps cool and fish start to move out of the shallow riffly water.

August Miracle Mile Fishing Reports

August 3rd- Honest Report on the Miracle Mile

Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The fly fishing at the Miracle Mile is ok. Some reports say that it’s good yet I’ve talked to their guides and they say it was tough.  I try not to be critical of fishing reports or companies but thought I’d throw that out there just in case you read another that says its great and feel like your getting mixed answers.

Flies for nymphing: Red San Juans, Pats rubber legs, goldie, gret rs2 foam post, pheasant tails with bead and soft hackle, and sparkle caddis.  Not much dry fly or streamer activity.

July Miracle Mile Fishing Reports

July 3rd- Stonefly Hatch!
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Stone Flies are starting to come off strong.  This means big fish on BIG dry flies.  This hatch will only last another week and a half.

June Miracle Mile Fishing Reports

June 6th- Road Closure
We received this news last night, please be aware when traveling to Alcova, Fremont Canyon, Miracle Mile.


The Bureau of Rec had divers out checking the bridge on Kortes Rd. and it has been determined that it is not structurally sound anymore. Either today or tomorrow County Road and Bridge will be shutting the bridge down to all traffic until it can be repaired or replaced. This means there will not be any public access to either Black or Cottonwood beaches, Miracle Mile area, or Fremont Canyon Bridge area from 220 via Kortes Road. Anyone going to those beaches or areas will have to travel around from Pathfinder through the canyon.

June 5th – Great Fishing, Tough Road Conditions
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The reports we have had from those coming back from the Miracle Mile have been very good.  But…the days up there have been limited due to the abnormally high amount of  moisture we have been getting.  For those of you who don’t know it, there is 15 Miles of dirt road and 15 miles of highway once you turn off of highway 22o. 15 miles to get real muddy and stuck.  So be careful  when planning a trip up there.

Hot Flies:  The usual-black mayhem midges, brown Pat’s rubber legs with yellow legs, very small bwo patterns, bead headed prince nymphs, red and purple San Juan Worms.

May Miracle Mile Fishing Report

May 26th- Roads Inaccessible 
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: I’m sure the Miracle Mile is still fishing good but the 15 miles of dirt roads have made it inaccessible for a few days because of the torrential down pours.  The road usually recovers quick but it looks like we may get some more rain.

May 6th- Tough Road Conditions
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Miracle Mile has been fishing decent but not as good as the Grey Reef.  The Mile roads are probably a mucky mess with all the rain we have been getting!  Might have to wait a few days.

Hot Flies: Egg pattens, brown pat’s rubber legs, small midges, very small bwo patterns, leeches, worm.

March Miracle Mile Fishing Reports

March 13th – Midge Hatch!
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Miracle Mile fished awesome today, especially in the morning!  We had a great midge hatch which really seemed to turned to the Trout on!

Most Productive Flies:

  1. Black Zebra Midge size 18-20
  2. Butterscotch & Cheese egg patterns

January Miracle Mile Fishing Reports

January 9th- Fantastic Winter Fishing!
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Miracle Mile is a fantastic winter fishery and is very mountainous with breathtaking scenery. It mainly stays ice free in the Winter.  The fishing can be very good or poor, depending on who you talk to, what methods you use, what type of water you fish, and your fly selection.  There are always fish to be caught here but sometimes they don’t come easy.  This fishery fish’s more like a freestone than a tailwater in that it can be hot, then shut off immediately(even though it is a tailwater).  But the amount of fish and the opportunity to catch Trophy Trout make this a guides favorite destination, especially in the winter.  This is the time to catch that trophy fish, while most people are dreaming of fishing thinking it’s too cold.  The Miracle Mile is 30 miles South of Casper Wy. to Alcova Wy., then another 30 miles South West from there.  The last 15 miles of this road is dirt, so you have to be much more careful in the winter so you don’t get stuck. Always feel free to contact us and we will give you the info we have!


2014 Miracle Mile Fishing Report Archives

October Miracle Mile Fishing Reports

October 29th – Browns on Browns, on Browns!
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Browns seem to be moving up into the Miracle Mile from Pathfinder Reservoir but it seems to be at a slower pace than normal.  The extraordinary warm weather we have been experiencing has effected this.  With the warm weather in the forecast for next week the Browns will get more and more aggressive as they move up river for the spawn. Yesterday when we were up there we didn’t really see many beds.  Don’t wait and wish you would have booked a trip to get a trophy Brown Trout!

October 25th – Tough but Oh So Productive!
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Miracle Mile wouldn’t let go of Trout easily today, but when it did, it released some BIG ones. Chuck Evans and his son Tj landed a few nice Brown Trout and a few nice Rainbow Trout.  The rest of the fish were small and few. And we worked the water pretty hard.  We tried everything but bait and spinners. Poor old Max Lewis only caught 1 fish today. But it was 25 inch Brown Trout. I guess the size made up for it! We didn’t see many spawning beds but we did catch more Brown Trout than normally.

Hot Flies: size 16 bead headed prince nymphs, blue wing wing olive emergers.

October 13th- Fishes like a Freestone
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Miracle Mile on the North Platte River usually has great fishing for a portion of the day although it has it’s off days.  Fishs more like a freestone than a tailwater.

Productive flies:

  1. graphic caddis
  2. red & purple san juan worms
  3. brown pine squirrel leeches
  4. mo hair leeches
  5. crayfish
  6. blue wing patterns
  7. grey foam back rs2′s
  8. juju baetis
  9. sparkly wind rs2
  10. white bo river buggers
  11. vanilla buggers
  12. some yellow streamers

October 8th- Did Someone Say Brown Trout?
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Miracle Mile has great nymphing opportunities right now.  The river in Saratoga is fishing good after about 10 am nymphing, streamer fishing and some dry fly action.  The Grey Reef has been fishing really good from start to finish with dry fly fishing, some streamer depending on day and cloud cover and always nymphing.  And we have been traveling to a close place were the dry fly fishing has been sick! Streamer fishing has been ok to awesome with a little cloud cover and nymphing great!  The fall fishing is awesome and you really have many options as to what body of water you want to fish, what stretch, and what method you enjoy using to catch your fish!  We have mentioned multiple bodies of water and haven’t mentioned flies working for them because nothing has really changed from the last several reports. But if you want to give us a call and ask for one of our guides we would be happy to load you up with free information to make your trip a success!

Miracle Mile Fishing Report: They finished up shocking the Miracle Mile.  We ran into their boats today but we started early so we weren’t unlucky enough to fish behind them.  Wow was the fishing ridiculous.  They dropped the flows way down so all the Trout were jammed into small runs.  What a fun day with guests Richard and David!

July 9th- Someone Say StoneFly?

May Miracle Mile Fishing Report

May 24th- Miracle Mile Update
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Grey Reef experienced a lot of rain and got blown out.  We took our 6 boat group to the Miracle Mile because it is sheltered from run off.  The water was clear and running over 1500 cfs.  The fishing was pretty good.  We also took 3 boats up there on Sunday and it fished even better.  There was a pretty good midge hatch followed by a blue wing hatch. Fishing the Miracle Mile is always like taking a breathe of fresh air.  You hardly see any other boat traffic up there and the scenery is breathtaking!

October 13th- Miracle Mile Update
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Miracle Mile is fishing excellent.  The problem recently is the roads.  Roads dried up over the weekend but looks like we are going to get hit with more rain making the roads a mess.

September Miracle Mile Fishing Report

September 28th- Off the Beaten Path
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: Miracle Mile fishing is really good right now.  Of course you don’t have the numbers like you do at the Reef, and it is 30 miles further off the beaten path, but if your fishing multiple days it is definetly worth the extra work for the experience.  The scenery up there is unmatchable!  And if you want to fish the Mile, we won’t try to talk you out of it to fish the Reef because it’s easy for us!

September 26th- Miracle Mile, Blue Ribbon Trout Stream
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Miracle Mile situated between Seminoe and Pathfinder Reservoirs is actually a seven mile long tail water section with consistent, cold water from the reservoir creating ideal big trout habitat. A recognized Blue Ribbon trout stream,  Miracle Mile Wyoming has some of the biggest and highest numbers of trout in the lower 48. Miracle Mile fishing in July during the stonefly hatch on is something to experience as avid fly fishermen spend the day throwing dry flies for some challenging, yet spectacular, fly fishing. In the past two years, the North Platte River has experienced high flows. The Wyoming Game and Fish surveys are showing the trout population has benefitted from these conditions. Fish numbers are up and expected to increase in the years to come, resulting in excellent Miracle Mile fishing opportunities.

September 21st- Fishing is Fabulous!
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The fly fishing in Wyoming on the Miracle Mile is fabulous right now.  I had the pleasure of guiding the Tabor’s who are great return clients of Wyoming Anglers.  The morning was on fire today with the afternoon slowing down. Red San Won worms and black midges were the main flies working well.

July Miracle Mile Fishing Report

July 3rd – Fishing Nirvana
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: After a long day of floating another body of water and some wade fishing, on our last day of the 5 day Stone Fly Camp, we decided to throw a boat in and fish for a couple hours to finish strong.  Allison Hartman for those of you who don’t know her, is a die hard fisher woman.  More die hard than most men I know.  She doesn’t wear out.  She always ready to keep fishing.  We had a great time fishing with this group.  And Allison gets all the attention as being a great fishermen because she is a woman and it’s less common.  But for the record her husband is also a stick.  If your reading this Price, you will have to ask one of your friends what that means.  LOL (maybe a guide) We fished for a couple hours to end our day and the nymphing was Grey Reef syle.  It was insane!  The Stone Flys are a few days late coming to the surface compared to last year but we did see a handful today.  This means that probably Wednesday or Thursday for sure, the dry fly fishing on the North Platte River will be at its BEST in my oppinion.  For those of you have been fly fishing awhile.  What funner way to catch fish is there than throwing big dries and watching fish rip them out of the sky?  If this sounds like fun, don’t wait it will be over soon.  Book your experience guide up here today!

June Miracle Mile Fishing Report

June 29th – Worth the Effort!
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The fishing at the Miracle Mile is pretty good right now! Catching fish on dries, streamers, and nymphs. We are currently hosting a stone fly camp at the Miracle Mile right now. We decided to continue the camp through the 2nd week in July and have a few openings for groups up to 6 people. We should have 2 solid weeks of fishing big stone dries. It’s my personal favorite time to be here out of the whole season. We have camp set up, cook all the meals. You fish, eat, relax and enjoy great fishing and the best western Scenery Wyoming has to offer! Don’t believe the reports of bad fishing up here. Other outfitters are saying this because the reef is fishing good and its a longer drive and more work. It is worth the extra effort or we wouldn’t be doing it! Even if u want to do just do a day trip give us a call!

June 17th- Fishing is Off the Hook
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The North Platte River from the Miracle Mile all the way through the Grey Reef to Casper Wyoming is fishing off the hook.  Or should I say on the hook?  The flows are at 25oo cfs on Grey Reef and 3000 at the Miracle Mile.  The fish are spread out and eating hard!    Guests are landing enough fish that they generally lose count after 20.  Come see if it’s only a fairly tale.  You won’t be disappointed and we guarantee that!

May 3rd- Miracle Mile Update
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Fishing on the North Platte River from Miracle Mile all the way to Casper on the Grey Reef is fishing excellent! Summer is here and the fishing couldn’t be better! I had the fine pleasure of taking Chris Norton and Tony Cooper fly fishing in Wyoming today.  What a beautiful day and the fishing was absolutely awesome.  Can’t tell you how many fish we caught cause we lost track.  The fish are really keying in on blue wings making it fun to fish short light rigs.

March Miracle Mile Fishing Report

March 24th- Fishing Remains Good Despite Winds
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The fishing at the Miracle Mile has pretty good considering the winds and temperatures the last few days.   Congrats to Jerome on a 22 inch Rainbow and Paul on catching a Walleye.

March 29th- Cold Temps and Wind on the Mile
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The fishing at the Miracle Mile in Wy was fair today.  Some runs fished ok and some fished good.  Temps in the am were fairly cold. There was an upstream wind that made it difficult to row and cast but Bob Seaman and Bob Hudson the owner of Lord of the Streams Custom Fly Rods were up for the challenge. They both caught some very nice Rainbow Trout!

February Miracle Mile Fishing Report

February 26th Fishing Report- Snow and Road conditions
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: Im sure the fly fishing is good but with the huge amount of snow we have gotten over the last few days we would not recommend traveling to the Miracle Mile for at least the next 2 to 3 days.  With the 15 miles of dirt road to get there it will be a mucky mess.  This road does recover very quickly though so we will  try to keep you up to date.  Potentially by Fri or Sat with the help of the Sun this road will be ok for travel. The Mile might be hard to get to but below is a picture of a nice Brown that was caught with guide Andy Bruste on the Grey Reef today.

February 22nd- Miracle Mile Update
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: The Miracle Mile trout population is roughly comprised of 50% rainbow trout and 50% brown trout. The ratio of rainbow to brown trout does vary from year to year and from season to season as fish move in and out of Path-finder Reservoir. Also, the rainbow trout population is composed of Firehole River and Eagle Lake rainbow trout which are both stocked in the Miracle Mile, fall-strain rainbow trout which are stocked in Pathfinder Reservoir, and wild rainbows hatched right in the Miracle Mile. We have been conducting monthly electrofishing through the fall and winter of 2011-2012 to document changes in the Miracle Mile species assemblage and determine if fall-strain rainbow trout that are stocked in Pathfinder Reservoir spawn in the Miracle Mile. Brown trout were most abundant during November, a month that is close to the peak of their spawn. Path-finder Reservoir-stocked fall rainbows (identified by their stubby dorsal fins) were most abundant in December; they comprised 18% of the catch during this month. Some of these fish moved in to the Miracle Mile from Pathfinder Reservoir within a few weeks from when they were stocked. Although the fall rainbow trout moved into the Miracle Mile, there was no evidence that they were attempting to spawn. We did see a few rainbows with milt or eggs, but most of these ripe fish were not fall rainbow from Pathfinder Reservoir. It appears that rainbow trout of all strains spawn during the winter in the Miracle Mile to some extent.

February 17th- Mile Update
Miracle Mile Fishing Report:   Andy Bruste and a couple other guides went Miracle Mile fly fishing today.  The fishing wasn’t hot but was fair.  In a half day with 2 guides fishing and 1 guide rowing they landed approximately 20 fish but they were all 2o+ inch Trout.  Most fish were caught nymphing.  Streamer fishing was fairly slow.  Flies working best were pink San Juan’s and egg patterns. Ya know it’s the days we deem slow that really aren’t to many other people from around the country. These times really make us appreciate the incredible fishery we have, when we are normally are boating 60 plus fish a day.

January Miracle Mile Fishing Report

January 21st- Slow Fishing but Better Than Being Stuck Behind a Desk!
Miracle Mile Fishing Report: We had 1 boat fish from the bridge down stream to the cliffs today.  What a beautiful day to be on the river with no wind! The fishing was fair, but it was much better than being fastened to a desk and a computer.
