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!
Green River Guides Gene Gautieri, Bo Johnson, and Nick Jackson had the chance to float the A section just below Flaming Gorge Dam last week. The trip was a special one- not only because these are some of top guides for the Green River, UT all having the same day off to fun float during mid-summer, or for the fact that the dry fly fishing is at it’s peak– this trip was extra special because it produced a MONSTER brown 24+ inches– something we hear about once a season- if we’re lucky.
Geno, a veteran guide on the Green of over 20 years, hooked this MASSIVE brown trout near 25 inches the afternoon of the trio’s float. The big boy ate a triple double and took 20 minutes to reel in. Nice job Geno– you deserve this fish! Thank you for being a pro at catching, and releasing– it took some serious skill to get this one to the net.
