RIVER FLOWS DROP TODAY

Inflows did not reach expected capacity for Flaming Gorge Reservoir during April and May, therefore the Bureau of Reclamation has decided to decrease flows to 6600 CFS for the next couple of weeks. Expect flows to increase again around the end of the month.

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.
