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!
Angler Rob Peterson landed this nice Brown Trout on private water on the Weber River near Coalville, UT today. Look in shallow ruffles that flow into deep pools and try throwing an egg!
Browns are paired up and on beds. Try nymphing with egg patterns in orange, pink, or opaque- colors can vary day to day. Streamers are a good bet as well!
Winter has arrived and the snow is blowing up on the Green River in Utah. Guide Wade Isaman and his buddy Dylan were not afraid of the cold and headed out to huck some streamers during the Brown spawn. They broke out the grill and had a blast- bundle up and get out there!
With the Browns spawning and the Blue Wings hatching, the fishing is good right now! Try a streamer!
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!
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.
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!
