CADDIS HATCH

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!

 

MARK AND BLAKE LANDED SEVERAL ON DRIES

We had a great time out on the river for two days with Mark and his son Blake- in from Reno, NV. The Caddis and Yellow Sally hatches gave these boys some great dry fly action a few weeks ago! We’ve had double after double this season and these two have kept the trend going. Looking forward to next time guys! — Looking for what to use now? Ants and hoppers are ON.

FLYFISHING AND BEING YOUNG AT HEART

We recently had the pleasure of taking 85 year old Bill out on the drift boat for 3 days of guided fly fishing on the Green River, UT just below Flaming Gorge Dam. Bill did an amazing job landing several fish on dry flies on sections A, B, and C. Although the Cicada hatch was for the most part absent this year, the Caddis and Yellow Sally hatches are in full swing– fortunately sticking around longer than typical and will hopefully carry over into August. Bill was a pleasure to be around and definitely still on top of the game both physically and mentally. Thanks for letting us guide you Bill! (Guide: Nick Jackson)
