FISHING IS GOOD ON THE GREEN

It was CJ and Sophie’s first time on a guided trip this last Saturday, and they did a great job! This trip was booked through Spinner Fall, with Nick Jackson as their guide.

All of the Outfitters are open and running up here on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam. Trout Creek Flies and Red Canyon Lodge have great lodging options, in mountain and desert settings. The spring fishing is great!

DIY CONSULATIONS on FISHING the GREEN, CASTING, TYING

Fishing remains open on the Green River Utah below Flaming Gorge Dam, but many outfitters are adhering to social distancing and are not running trips, including the one we guide under. We are trying our best to get creative on how to maintain our business while entertaining all of you as well. Our clients keep us afloat, we miss you as much as you miss the Green!

We are getting phone calls daily about anglers looking to come up and fish. While we aren’t guiding any trips right now we are offering advice and all the flies you will need to fish on your own!

FOR $20 YOU’LL GET:

20 minutes to ask the guide for any advice on fishing locations, rigs, flies, whether to go from a boat or walk/wade, when to go, absolutely anything! Meetings can be done via phone, email, facetime, android video, or zoom. Think of it as virtual guiding. Feel free to discuss future booking dates as well, for when we are available to get you back in our drift boat. You may also request to have fly tying or casting instruction instead/in addition. We’d love to customize your consultation to your wants and needs.

FOR AN ADDITIONAL $20:

A half a dozen flies for fishing the Green at various times, or specific to the time you plan to come up and fish. These can be picked up in Dutch John or mailed for $5.

Please call or text 801-706-7836 or email dryflynickjuli@gmail.com to set up your time. Payment can be made via Venmo @fishingwithnick or by Credit Card via emailed invoice using Square.

THANK YOU to all of our past, present, and future clients! We appreciate your support. This is a great way to support small business and help keep us around for future floats! Please feel free to share. We hope you all are staying sane and safe!

CICADAS ARE ON!

Cicadas are in full force on the Green River in Utah! PMD’s, caddis, and yellow sallies are all starting to show up. Both dry and nymph fishing are good right now and will only get better in the coming weeks. Get out and fish!

HIGH WATER FLOWS 2019

The Bureau of Reclamation states the water flows below Flaming Gorge Dam will increase in the next few weeks, in conjunction with the Razorback Sucker hatch of larvae. Please check the BOR website or usgs.gov for the most up to date information. The nymph fishing should be good during high water.

DRY FLY FISHING IS GOOD RIGHT NOW

The hatches are abundant and the dry fly fishing is good right now! Especially during afternoons and evenings, and when the wind lets up.

Get out and have a safe 4th of July! Join us in Dutch John, UT for fireworks on the 7th!

 

 

FISHING THE GREEN RIVER, APRIL 2018

Fishing is good right now on the Green River, Utah! Blue Wing Olives are hatching on overcast days, and on sunny days we’re seeing the midge hatch happen. The nymph fishing is good, as well as the dry fly fishing but is more weather dependent. Today is rainy and cold, expect the B section below Red Creek Rapid to be blown out for a few days.

We had a great couple of days with Jeff and Steve! Nice fishing guys, great numbers.
