High water flows have been extended approximately 10 days longer than expected, but that’s not stopping the good nymphing! The trout are in search of junk food! Try a worm, scud, or egg for some good underwater action.

Don’t let the lack of the almighty cicada get you down- it’s still one of the prettiest and most abundant fisheries in the west! Fish on Jenny.

Doug Ouellette and his wife Jenny of Reno, NV visited the Green last week and with the help of Guide Nick Jackson absolutely crushed it! 20 fish to the boat- during high water- nice job guys!


When we are not guiding on the Green River, Utah we spend our winters guiding on Pyramid Lake, Nevada- going after the world’s largest strain of cutthroat trout- the Lahontan Cutthroat (20 pounders). There are always  a lot of fly choices when getting out on different waters, so we wanted to share our #1 favorite fly for those of you that might venture west to the alkaline lake. It’s the Original Popcorn Beetle, created by friend and fellow Guide Doug Ouellette. To read about the origin of this killer fly click here, and to learn more about fishing Pyramid or to hire our guide service visit our website . We encourage you to head out to Pyramid, please look us up when you do! We also encourage you to share the story of the Original Popcorn Beetle.
