The dry fly fishing is still phenomenal on the Green River, although the cicadas are nearly done the fish are still biting on them. The Swart Brothers had a great day on the river and landed some real beauties!
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!
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!
Flows are at 8,000 CFS on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam. The nymph fishing is good, try heavy weights with a red San Juan worm or scuds in various colors. You’ll find fish near the bottom, on sand bars, and in slower water near the banks.
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.
The Green is fishing well, both dries and nymphs are working. We expect high flows to start in the next few weeks. Angler Joe Snoy caught this beautiful rainbow last week!
The fishing’s good this holiday season!
Its August on the Green River Utah and that time of year when terrestrials are working well! Try a big ant, hopper, or beetle. Matt out of NY landed this beautiful brown yesterday!
The big dry fly fishing is ON. Hoppers and ants are working well on the Green River Utah! Try sizes 10-4, black or brown in ants, tan hoppers. Think BIG!
The fishing has been good! The big boys are eating big bugs making the dry fly fishing great.
