The Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam is open for fishing! DNR is asking that people practice responsibility when coming to Daggett County for recreation.

We will begin running guided trips May 1, 2020 under Trout Creek Flies (permit of Ashley National Forest). Please note the following precautions put into place:

•Shuttles for clients/guides will be conducted seperately. Shuttle drivers will wear masks and have antiseptic sprays and wipes with them for vehicles.

• Clients and Guides are both required to wear masks, gloves, and sunglasses. Guides will have antiseptic wipes and sprays readily available. Face to face communication should be avoided. Pictures are ok, if distance is kept and masks on.

• Lunches will be administered seperately, clients will pick theirs up at the shop prior to launch. Clients can purchase drinks for the day in the shop as well, Guides will provide bottled water. Tables will not be set up and distancing will be implemented.

• Clients are encouraged to bring their own Type III life jackets, and lunch coolers. Guides can provide both if needed, they will be disinfected daily.

?Looking forward to getting back out there, let’s be responsible, thoughtful, and methodical in our safety measures in order to protect each other! ?

As the cicadas wind down we are now seeing yellow Sally’s and caddis. The big bug is still working on the river, but many fish are also refusing it. We always have a blast when Rick and Dave come out from Tennessee, they are hardcore Anglers and so fun to be around! They landed a ton of nice fish!

Rick with a big Brown!


Fishing is good right now on the Green River, Utah! Blue Wing Olives are hatching on overcast days, and on sunny days we’re seeing the midge hatch happen. The nymph fishing is good, as well as the dry fly fishing but is more weather dependent. Today is rainy and cold, expect the B section below Red Creek Rapid to be blown out for a few days.

We had a great couple of days with Jeff and Steve! Nice fishing guys, great numbers.


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!

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.


Guide Ryan Dangerfield headed out to the river the last few days and landed some nice fish on streamers, and on the dry dropper. Later in the day when release flows increase the fishing tends to slow down quite a bit. Expect high flows this year- we’ve had lots of snow and the lake is high!
