There is an estimated 8,000-22,000 fish per mile on the Green River, here’s your proof. This clip was filmed just below Flaming Gorge Dam the first week of October 2015.

Green River Guide Nick Jackson and Trout TV Show Host Hilary Hutcheson kill it during the Cicada hatch last July in Utah. Trout Creek Flies hosted the two day trip and fly fishing the Green could not have gone better. The episode airs for free for 7 days online on Trout TV Show’s website- Green River Episode.
Trout Creek Flies got a request to book a guided trip Wednesday afternoon just before Luke Bryan’s concert in Salt Lake City during his 2015 Kick the Dust Up Tour. Luke also had a show scheduled for Thursday night at Usana Amphitheater and wanted to book a guided trip down Utah’s Green River just below Flaming Gorge Dam before his second night’s appearance. He flew in with a friend on a small plane and landed in Dutch John’s airport, where his guide picked him up for a day of fly fishing. Guide John M. Sparger and Trout Creek Flies did a great job entertaining Luke, who landed some very nice big fish on the Green. He was greeted at the ramp at Little Hole with some SWAG, a six pack of local Vernal Brewing Co.’s Little Hole Lager (he cracked one open right away), and a very big thank you for his selection with TCF. He was open and friendly snapping pics and signing onsies for a few very lucky locals.

One of our favorite clients and dear friend John Cancilla (Newport, CA) landed this big boy 24 inch brown on the A-section in mid-July.
This huge brown was caught on a tiny gray scud- size 22.

Nick and Julianne rarely get the same day off- so yesterday afternoon they met up after work to fish Red Canyon‘s private lake- East Green Lake. There are several huge Rainbows and Tigers right off the dock. Here’s a look at some of the fish they landed- both on a zebra midge. (These fish are still eating Cicada dry flies!)
Lago Pollux is near the town of Coyhaique in the Patagonia region of Chile. The waters are full of huge rainbow trout that are somewhat easy to catch- the minimal fishing pressure in the secluded mountain and farmlands allows for more curious fish eager to eat. Nick Jackson was fortunate to have guided on the rivers and lakes in the area for four seasons (2010-2013). He filmed this video on a GoPro 3 while floating tubing off the banks of Campo Chileno in 2012.
