The colors are changing and we’ve seen the first of snow for the season! The nymph fishing is good- try pseudo-nymphs or scuds. There’s some dry fly action to be had in back eddies- try a small ant or parachute Adams. October is filling up- we expect the fishing to be good late into the season! Pictured below is Guide Nick Jackson with one of our favorite clients Joe Snoy. Joe landed several fish on the fly rod throughout the day including this nice Brown!

The dry fly fishing is decent right now on the Green River, Utah. Ants and Hoppers are working well. Brock landed this beautiful 22 inch Brown today, on an ant dry fly.
August is here and summer is almost over! The river has been busy with rafters and fisherman! Big bugs have recently been doing well for dry fly fishing. Hoppers are on the banks and fish are looking up. The pseudo hatch has started, try a pheasant tail nymph. Small ant flies are also working. We’ve had rain showers almost every day for the last month, so bring your rain jacket!

Since the flows have dropped the fishing has been great. Small dry flies are working well as there is a large Caddis hatch daily, Yellow Sallies have died off for the most part but can still be seen. Swarms of small midges have been erupting. Nymph fishing is good right now- try a scud or pheasant tail. Streamer fishing is also good!
Thunderstorms have been happening every afternoon so make sure you bring a raincoat when you come up!
We had a great day on the Green River yesterday with Andy and Wyatt out of Maine. We landed several fish including this awesome double! We are looking forward to a drop in release flows starting July 5th and ending July 10th at 2400 CFS.
The Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam is at 6600 cfs until tomorrow, then flows increase back up to 8600 cfs for the rest of June. Small nymphs are working well!
Flows are still high on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam at 8600 CFS. Pat and Ralph Wood came out from California for a trip on the green with guide Nick Jackson and had a great time. Pat landed this fat Brown on the A section, nice job! Cicadas are out and about. Try a small nymph for the river.
The Flaming Gorge Dam is once again releasing 8600 CFS. Stay safe out there!
Despite the high water lots of cicadas have been seen, heard, and caught!
Inflows did not reach expected capacity for Flaming Gorge Reservoir during April and May, therefore the Bureau of Reclamation has decided to decrease flows to 6600 CFS for the next couple of weeks. Expect flows to increase again around the end of the month.
River fishing is good right now. The water is at 9100 cfs so high water is still rushing. Blue Wings continue to hatch and there is some dry fly fishing. Fish are suspended in the back eddies eating BWO’s in the afternoons. We have been seeing Cicadas on the A section; if there are a whole bunch there could be some dry fly action on big bugs.
The lake fishing on Flaming Gorge has been good with Flying Ant hatches happening and rainbows coming out of the spawn. We have been getting rainbows on attractor patterns dropped with a Zebra Midge or stripping leech like patterns. An olive or black Zig-Jig is also working well.
Stay safe and enjoy this nice weather!
