FALL FISHING ON THE GREEN RIVER UTAH

The colors are changing and we’ve seen the first of snow for the season! The nymph fishing is good- try pseudo-nymphs or scuds. There’s some dry fly action to be had in back eddies- try a small ant or parachute Adams. October is filling up- we expect the fishing to be good late into the season! Pictured below is Guide Nick Jackson with one of our favorite clients Joe Snoy. Joe landed several fish on the fly rod throughout the day including this nice Brown!

DRY FLY FISHING THE GREEN RIVER

The dry fly fishing is decent right now on the Green River, Utah. Ants and Hoppers are working well. Brock landed this beautiful 22 inch Brown today, on an ant dry fly.

AUGUST FISHING ON THE GREEN

August is here and summer is almost over!  The river has been busy with rafters and fisherman! Big bugs have recently been doing well for dry fly fishing. Hoppers are on the banks and fish are looking up. The pseudo hatch has started, try a pheasant tail nymph. Small ant flies are also working. We’ve had rain showers almost every day for the last month, so bring your rain jacket!

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!

 

DRY FLY FISHING IN DECEMBER

If you’re willing to face the cold and wind on the river this holiday week and plan on fishing the Green River UT watch for fluctuating water levels. Release flows from Flaming Gorge Dam will have the fish discombobulated so your best bet is going to be during stabilization periods.

For dry fly fishing use a BWO or small midge in back eddies. Nymph fishing should be a safe bet overall- try midges, eggs, or pheasant tail. Streamer fishing should produce early or late in the day when the water flows are typically changing. Bundle up, stay safe, and MerryChristmas!

FAT 23 INCH BROWN LANDED ON SIZE 24 NYMPH

Client TJ from Farmington, UT landed this nice, fat 23 inch Brown on Utah’s Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam- on the B Section. He landed this monster Brown on an itsy-bitsy size 24 nymph. Nice job TJ, we enjoyed having you and your wife with us in the boat!
