DRY FLY FISHING STILL GOOD

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!

CICADAS ARE ON!

Cicadas are in full force on the Green River in Utah! PMD’s, caddis, and yellow sallies are all starting to show up. Both dry and nymph fishing are good right now and will only get better in the coming weeks. Get out and fish!

HIGH WATER FLOWS 2019

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.

TERRESTRIALS WORKING WELL

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!

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!

 

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.
