Hatch season is here !

Green River Fishing Report 7/10/20

Hatch season is in full swing!

With good water temps and our current flows we are going to continue to have nice hatches of caddis, pale morning dun’s, yellow sally’s. Flows are low and offer some nice wade fishing and floating.

Dry flies:    

We have some very nice hatches right now on. Early mornings and late evenings are thick with cadis. Fish evening into the night for the best of the cadis. Mid morning to mid afternoon we have some good PMD’s around. Sally’s are thick around Little Hole down through upper B section. For caddis during the day you want something more “moppy” and bigger goddards will do the trick, in the evening and night a grey or tan body para caddis in smaller 16 to 18’s are getting them, triple doubles and renegades will work both day and night for them. For the PMD’s emergers are the key. The best sally’s right now are low riding ones.

Nymphing: 

PMD, Caddis, Sally nymphs – they are everywhere.

Streamers: 

Streamers are fishing well on cloudy days, or early morning and later evening being best.

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

Green River Flows

Flows are low and slow and that will be the name of the game for the foreseeable future. We will have minimal flows through the day with afternoon bumps for power generation. This makes for an easy float and amazing wade fishing but also a technical fishery.
