We are looking forward to today’s Single Fly Event with proceeds going to conservation efforts. Good luck to everyone!
We had a great time out on the river for two days with Mark and his son Blake- in from Reno, NV. The Caddis and Yellow Sally hatches gave these boys some great dry fly action a few weeks ago! We’ve had double after double this season and these two have kept the trend going. Looking forward to next time guys! — Looking for what to use now? Ants and hoppers are ON.
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!
High water flows have been extended approximately 10 days longer than expected, but that’s not stopping the good nymphing! The trout are in search of junk food! Try a worm, scud, or egg for some good underwater action.
Don’t let the lack of the almighty cicada get you down- it’s still one of the prettiest and most abundant fisheries in the west! Fish on Jenny.
Doug Ouellette and his wife Jenny of Reno, NV visited the Green last week and with the help of Guide Nick Jackson absolutely crushed it! 20 fish to the boat- during high water- nice job guys!
Client John Fee and Guide Nick Jackson enjoyed this beautiful, snowy, spring day on the Green River Utah recently. The beautiful rainbow ate a pheasant tail nymph.
Nick and Julianne rarely get the same day off- so yesterday afternoon they met up after work to fish Red Canyon‘s private lake- East Green Lake. There are several huge Rainbows and Tigers right off the dock. Here’s a look at some of the fish they landed- both on a zebra midge. (These fish are still eating Cicada dry flies!)
