Green River Fly Fishing Report - October 18, 2011

The dry fly fishing is still great with small dries such as beetles, sailor ants, and triple doubles size #12-16.  There are some size #20 Psuedocloeon mayflies hatching on cloudy days. We have also seen a few #10 orange October Caddis.  The browns are in pre-spawn colors and are aggressive towards streamers.   

The Green River is running at a daily average flow of 2,000cfs - ideal river flows.
