Green River Fly Fishing Report - July 29th, 2017

The Green River flows have been stable for a few weeks now.  They are averaging 2,400cfs (1,400 - 3,000 daily).  The dry fly fishing has returned to normal as the Yellow Sally Stoneflies, PMD's, and Caddis are all waning.  There are still enough to grab the attention of hungry trout - usually they show up around 10-11am.  .  There are lots of terrestrials out there and the Trico hatch should start on the lower river fairly soon.  

Red Creek blew out a couuple days ago - it will be a few more days till it is fishable on the lower river

 

We are booked out till late August, but have openings in September.
