It was CJ and Sophie’s first time on a guided trip this last Saturday, and they did a great job! This trip was booked through Spinner Fall, with Nick Jackson as their guide.
All of the Outfitters are open and running up here on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam. Trout Creek Flies and Red Canyon Lodge have great lodging options, in mountain and desert settings. The spring fishing is great!
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.
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 fall is a great time to fish the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam. During these cloudy October days try an articulated streamer in various colors, like this brown and white one tied by Guide Wade Isaman.
We recently had the pleasure of taking 85 year old Bill out on the drift boat for 3 days of guided fly fishing on the Green River, UT just below Flaming Gorge Dam. Bill did an amazing job landing several fish on dry flies on sections A, B, and C. Although the Cicada hatch was for the most part absent this year, the Caddis and Yellow Sally hatches are in full swing– fortunately sticking around longer than typical and will hopefully carry over into August. Bill was a pleasure to be around and definitely still on top of the game both physically and mentally. Thanks for letting us guide you Bill! (Guide: Nick Jackson)
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!
