The dry fly fishing was fantastic on cicadas before the high water flows!…. Let’s hope that it goes back to that afterwards. Watch for max capacity CFS for a few days.
The dry fly fishing is still phenomenal on the Green River, although the cicadas are nearly done the fish are still biting on them. The Swart Brothers had a great day on the river and landed some real beauties!
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!
The hatches are abundant and the dry fly fishing is good right now! Especially during afternoons and evenings, and when the wind lets up.
Get out and have a safe 4th of July! Join us in Dutch John, UT for fireworks on the 7th!
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.
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.
