FISHING IS GOOD ON THE GREEN

It was CJ and Sophie’s first time on a guided trip this last Saturday, and they did a great job! This trip was booked through Spinner Fall, with Nick Jackson as their guide.

All of the Outfitters are open and running up here on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam. Trout Creek Flies and Red Canyon Lodge have great lodging options, in mountain and desert settings. The spring fishing is great!

FISHING IS OPEN

The Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam is open for fishing! DNR is asking that people practice responsibility when coming to Daggett County for recreation.

We will begin running guided trips May 1, 2020 under Trout Creek Flies (permit of Ashley National Forest). Please note the following precautions put into place:

•Shuttles for clients/guides will be conducted seperately. Shuttle drivers will wear masks and have antiseptic sprays and wipes with them for vehicles.

• Clients and Guides are both required to wear masks, gloves, and sunglasses. Guides will have antiseptic wipes and sprays readily available. Face to face communication should be avoided. Pictures are ok, if distance is kept and masks on.

• Lunches will be administered seperately, clients will pick theirs up at the shop prior to launch. Clients can purchase drinks for the day in the shop as well, Guides will provide bottled water. Tables will not be set up and distancing will be implemented.

• Clients are encouraged to bring their own Type III life jackets, and lunch coolers. Guides can provide both if needed, they will be disinfected daily.

🐟Looking forward to getting back out there, let’s be responsible, thoughtful, and methodical in our safety measures in order to protect each other! 🐟

DIY CONSULATIONS on FISHING the GREEN, CASTING, TYING

Fishing remains open on the Green River Utah below Flaming Gorge Dam, but many outfitters are adhering to social distancing and are not running trips, including the one we guide under. We are trying our best to get creative on how to maintain our business while entertaining all of you as well. Our clients keep us afloat, we miss you as much as you miss the Green!

We are getting phone calls daily about anglers looking to come up and fish. While we aren’t guiding any trips right now we are offering advice and all the flies you will need to fish on your own!

FOR $20 YOU’LL GET:

20 minutes to ask the guide for any advice on fishing locations, rigs, flies, whether to go from a boat or walk/wade, when to go, absolutely anything! Meetings can be done via phone, email, facetime, android video, or zoom. Think of it as virtual guiding. Feel free to discuss future booking dates as well, for when we are available to get you back in our drift boat. You may also request to have fly tying or casting instruction instead/in addition. We’d love to customize your consultation to your wants and needs.

FOR AN ADDITIONAL $20:

A half a dozen flies for fishing the Green at various times, or specific to the time you plan to come up and fish. These can be picked up in Dutch John or mailed for $5.

Please call or text 801-706-7836 or email dryflynickjuli@gmail.com to set up your time. Payment can be made via Venmo @fishingwithnick or by Credit Card via emailed invoice using Square.

THANK YOU to all of our past, present, and future clients! We appreciate your support. This is a great way to support small business and help keep us around for future floats! Please feel free to share. We hope you all are staying sane and safe!

DRY FLY FISHING STILL GOOD

As the cicadas wind down we are now seeing yellow Sally’s and caddis. The big bug is still working on the river, but many fish are also refusing it. We always have a blast when Rick and Dave come out from Tennessee, they are hardcore Anglers and so fun to be around! They landed a ton of nice fish!

Dave with a beautiful Rainbow!
Rick with a big Brown!

CICADAS ARE ON!

Cicadas are in full force on the Green River in Utah! PMD’s, caddis, and yellow sallies are all starting to show up. Both dry and nymph fishing are good right now and will only get better in the coming weeks. Get out and fish!

HIGH WATER FLOWS 2019

The Bureau of Reclamation states the water flows below Flaming Gorge Dam will increase in the next few weeks, in conjunction with the Razorback Sucker hatch of larvae. Please check the BOR website or usgs.gov for the most up to date information. The nymph fishing should be good during high water.
