DRY FLY FISHING IN DECEMBER

If you’re willing to face the cold and wind on the river this holiday week and plan on fishing the Green River UT watch for fluctuating water levels. Release flows from Flaming Gorge Dam will have the fish discombobulated so your best bet is going to be during stabilization periods.

For dry fly fishing use a BWO or small midge in back eddies. Nymph fishing should be a safe bet overall- try midges, eggs, or pheasant tail. Streamer fishing should produce early or late in the day when the water flows are typically changing. Bundle up, stay safe, and MerryChristmas!

BROWN TROUT SPAWN ON THE GREEN RIVER UT

Winter rates have started at many of the lodges up on the Green River Utah below Flaming Gorge Dam. It’s a great time to get out and enjoy the crisp fall weather with less crowds and save some coin in the pocketbook.  The Brown Trout are starting to spawn, which means good fishing– look for shallow, gravel bottoms and throw an egg in shades of chartreuse, pink, orange, or opaque.  On overcast days huck a streamer!

FALL STREAMER FISHING ON THE GREEN RIVER

The fall is a great time to fish the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam. During these cloudy October days try an articulated streamer in various colors, like this brown and white one tied by Guide Wade Isaman.

FAT 23 INCH BROWN LANDED ON SIZE 24 NYMPH

Client TJ from Farmington, UT landed this nice, fat 23 inch Brown on Utah’s Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam- on the B Section. He landed this monster Brown on an itsy-bitsy size 24 nymph. Nice job TJ, we enjoyed having you and your wife with us in the boat!
