Kathy landed an awesome brown yesterday on the Green River, Utah. Fishing below the Flaming Gorge Dam is always beautiful in the Fall; the colors are a wonder to see! Mike also landed some great fish!
The big dry fly fishing is ON. Hoppers and ants are working well on the Green River Utah! Try sizes 10-4, black or brown in ants, tan hoppers. Think BIG!
The fishing has been good! The big boys are eating big bugs making the dry fly fishing great.
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 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!

The flows are high at 8600 CFS. But don’t let that scare you! The fishing is great and there is a nice BWO hatch on. Try setting up a nymph rig for the upper A section, and on the lower near Little Hole you should be able to get some dry fly action! Mark Wilson landed this beautiful rainbow last week.
With the snowpack well above average this year the dam release flows will be much higher than usual for the Green River in Utah. The Bureau of Reclamation has issued release Flows at 4600 CFS throughout March, and are likely to continue to increase as the season goes on. Don’t let high water scare you- nymph fishing should be good! And the dry fly fishing after the flush is typically extraordinary.
We had a blast with the Bakken family the other day on the Green River. They did a great job landing several fish! We are excited about high water dropping (currently at around 5600 CFS) and have started to see some dry fly action. This weekend we landed a few on caddis and crickets- great to see the fish starting to eat up top! And below on the dry dropper worms are still working well (orange wire and chenille natural), and also prince nymphs. Enjoy!
With the signal of the endangered razorback sucker larvae presence high water flows started last week on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam, UT. The increased CFS will last one to two weeks eventually peaking at 8,600 CFS with current flows at 7,000 CFS. Read more about the flows from the Bureau of Reclamation here, and for current conditions from the U.S. Geological Survey click here.
The high water flows and the near absent cicada hatch thus far have the dry fly action at a low. Try nymphing with a worm, egg, or scud, or a huck a streamer!
