BIG BROWNS ON DRY FLIES

It’s always a great time on the river in September. The rafting crowds are gone, the weather is still pleasant, the leaves start to change, and the fall caddis come out. Joe Snoy landed several nice fish on his two day trip out on the Green this past weekend- we look forward to more dry fly action- try a hopper, ant, or caddis! Joe Snoy Sept 2016

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.

SCUDS ARE THE FLY OF CHOICE

The fish are tight to the banks, and on sand bars in the slower water. With the strong flows, you’ll need to hit bottom to reach the fish on their level. Here’s a first hand look at some of the scuds the trout are feeding on.

Scud

Try gray or amber in size 20-14. Also worms are still doing well- try a neon nightmare or wire worm in red, pink, natural, or orange with a scud trailer.

BLUE WING OLIVE HATCH IN IT’S PRIME!

This season on the Green River is off to a great start! Guide Nick Jackson snapped this pic of client Donald on their guided trip down the A section the other day.  Try a zebra midge up top and a BWO on the lower half. The Blue Wing Olive hatch is at it’s peak- get out there while you can and bundle up!
