Camping is still open in the seasonally open campgrounds. 

All that being said, we recommend everyone planning on visiting our area to be cautious. If you are sick, stay home. If you have been exposed to someone who has been sick, stay home. 

We also recommend calling the shop to check and see if there are any new closures that we have recently been made aware of.

Flows:

Currently the Flaming Gorge releases as of May 28, 2020 after 5 pm is 8,600 cfs (~4,600 cfs powerplant capacity and ~4,000 cfs bypass capacity) as a result of the Larval Trigger Study Plan Razorback sucker spring peak releases. Flows should be dropping to our normal summer flows around 6/3.

Overview:

High water is making for some very good nymphing and streamer fishing. We do have good numbers of cicadas around and the dry fly fishing should pick up once the flows have dropped down some.

Dry flies:    

Once the flows drop some we should have some very good cicada fishing, we are starting to see some caddis as well.

Nymphing: 

While the water is still up scuds and worms are fishing well. Once it drops down it will be caddis, scuds, soft hackles, PMD's and Sally nymphs.

Streamers: 

Streamers have started to slow down a bit. If it's a cloudy day it will pick back up.

Stop in the shop and we can pick you out the best selection of flies and streamers for you day.  Any questions? Give us a call. 435-885-3355

The average daily flows are planned to be sustained at 2,150 cfs until the beginning of March 2020. We are starting to see some strong midge hatches on all sections and some fish are keying into some of the sporadic BWO hatches that we are starting to see as well. Streamer fishing is still prime!

Dry flies:     Midge are starting to come off thick on our warmer days with pods of fish keyed in on them. Look for riffles and tailouts with slow side water and you should find some heads up. We are getting some early BWO's on all sections as well with fish on A taking adults.

Nymphing:  Midge and baetis are key. Small zebras, bling, juju midge, PT's, Barr's BWO, and Radiation baetis, are getting eats. 

Streamers: Streamers are the on fire right now. Smaller guys have been working well for us. Gold, white and black have been our hot colors.

The average daily flows are planned to be sustained at 2,150 cfs until the beginning of March 2020. Water temps are good for this time of year, with fluctuations from 37 up to 39.5. Streamer fishing is on fire right now. We are catching some very aggressive and healthy browns and rainbows. Nymphing is very productive, concentrate on slower holes and eddies, and look for any mid river buckets and drops.

The canyon has a fresh coating of snow. All boat ramps are accessible and we are running shuttles to all of them.   

Dry flies:     Midge are our main dry hatch right now. We will start to see some good hatches over the next few weeks. With BWO's on the horizon.

Nymphing:  Small scuds, zebra midges, thread body midge, gray soft hackle. Sizes 18-22 will all get you some nice fish.

Streamers: Streamers are the ticket right now. Gold and black have been the hot colors but try a variety if those aren't working. Shady spots in the canyon and cloudy days offer some great action right now.

Stop in the shop and we can pick you out the best selection of flies and streamers for you day. We have been seeing some very big fish caught.  Any questions give us a call. 435-885-3355
