The Bureau of Reclamation states the water flows below Flaming Gorge Dam will increase in the next few weeks, in conjunction with the Razorback Sucker hatch of larvae. Please check the BOR website or usgs.gov for the most up to date information. The nymph fishing should be good during high water.
Its August on the Green River Utah and that time of year when terrestrials are working well! Try a big ant, hopper, or beetle. Matt out of NY landed this beautiful brown yesterday!
Steve and his son Jake out from Michigan landed this beautiful 29 inch Rainbow on the a section May 5th. It measured 29 inches! And was landed on a size 22 baetis nymph. It is one of the cleanest rainbows we have ever seen on the Green River, Utah.
The warm weather and 3 day weekend have brought some good fishing on the Green River Utah. Some BWO’s have been coming off, and the streamer fishing is good! There are crowds out so prepare for some other anglers in the water.
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!
We had a great day on the Green River yesterday with Andy and Wyatt out of Maine. We landed several fish including this awesome double! We are looking forward to a drop in release flows starting July 5th and ending July 10th at 2400 CFS.
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.
The Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam Utah is at 8600 cfs this spring. The fishing is good and BWO’s are hatching.
We went out the Snoys recently and landed fish on just about every method of fly fishing around- we used dries, dry dropper, nymphs, deep dredging, and streamers. It was a great few days- as always with the Snoys who landed some big fish! We started the day with a 20 inch Rainbow and ended it with a 20 inch Brown. Great time- nice job guys!
The Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam has higher than average flows this spring. Release flows jumped up to 8600 CFS today. There’s a nice BWO hatch on, and streamer fishing has been good. A heavy nymph rig typically does well in high water. Wading will be difficult and is not recommended; fishing from a drift should be good though! Get out there and stay safe!
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!
