Low and slow – fish the fast

Green River Fishing Report 6/26/20

Flows have dropped and look to remain that way.

We still have some good numbers of cicadas around. They’re smaller guys this year – think slim 8’s to 12’s – we should be able to fish them for another three weeks. PMD’s, sally’s, and caddis are on deck and primed to put on a good show. Get strategic with your bugs – the bigger they are, the faster the water – fish late with the smaller bugs in close.

Dry flies:    

Teresterals; cicadas, ants, crickets, beetles – they are all around, fish them at the right time on the right sections anr you will get after ’em.

Caddis, PMD’s, and a few Sally’s are starting to come off in fair numbers thought the day and late afternoon. We are seeing some good sippers on pmd’s mid morning in the right spots – cripples and extendo’s are getting those, fishing the fall get some rusty’s – 16’s and 18’s. Caddis are going to go nuts here soon, fish late for the good hatch – darker bodies with a hare wing – find something in a 14 to 18 that skates.

Nymphing: 

PMD, Caddis, Sally nymphs – they are everywhere. Scuds and worms still…

Streamers: 

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

Flows are low and slow and that will be the name of the game for the foreseeable future. This makes for an easy float and amazing wade fishing but also a technical fishery.
