FAT BROWN ON THE A SECTION

Flows are still high on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam at 8600 CFS. Pat and Ralph Wood came out from California for a trip on the green with guide Nick Jackson and had a great time. Pat landed this fat Brown on the A section, nice job! Cicadas are out and about. Try a small nymph for the river.

JANUARY FISHING ON THE GREEN RIVER 2017

Anglers are ringing in the new year with streamers this January on the Green! The weather has cleared up from lots recent fog and inversion, but still cold. If you are willing to brave the drift down the river in January temps the streamer fishing is reported to be great. The trout are also up for eating small midge patterns, and BWO’s in certain areas. Bundle up and get out there! Send us your pictures, and like us on Facebook www.facebook.com/dryflyutah.

If you’re looking for alternative fishing destinations in winter time, consider heading west to Pyramid Lake, Nevada- home of the world’s largest cutthroat trout- the Pilot Peak strain of Lahontan Cutthroat. Guides on Pyramid Lake report monster fish in higher numbers than past years. A small fish caught on this amazing lake is usually around 20″, and the more coveted size is closer to 20 pounds! Since the reintroduction of this massive strain in 2006 the largest we have heard of is 28 pounds and we are waiting in anticipation or someone to break that 30 pound mark! Put this destination on your bucket list and contact us for all your guiding, fishing, and lodging needs. Check out Pyramid Lake Guides website, like them on Facebook, and follow them on Instagram @pyramidlakeguides for the most up to date fishing conditions. Pyramid Lake Nevada is on the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Reservation 25 miles north of Reno.

Luke Bryan Fly Fishes the Green River Utah

Trout Creek Flies got a request to book a guided trip Wednesday afternoon just before Luke Bryan’s concert in Salt Lake City during his 2015 Kick the Dust Up Tour. Luke also had a show scheduled for Thursday night at Usana Amphitheater and wanted to book a guided trip down Utah’s Green River just below Flaming Gorge Dam before his second night’s appearance. He flew in with a friend on a small plane and landed in Dutch John’s airport, where his guide picked him up for a day of fly fishing. Guide John M. Sparger and Trout Creek Flies did a great job entertaining Luke, who landed some very nice big fish on the Green. He was greeted at the ramp at Little Hole with some SWAG, a six pack of local Vernal Brewing Co.’s Little Hole Lager (he cracked one open right away), and a very big thank you for his selection with TCF. He was open and friendly snapping pics and signing onsies for a few very lucky locals.

See some pics of Luke on the Green River UT and his big Brown’s here: Trout Creek Flies Luke Bryan Fly Fishing Trip on Facebook. Luke also has a video of him fly fishing near Casper, WY the next day after his Green River guided trip and his two shows in SLC- watch the Youtube video here:
