Green River Fly Fishing Report - July 6th, 2017

The river is dropping daily, and the fish are rising!  The lower flows and warmer water have triggered huge masses of Caddis to emerge.  Caddis in sizes #12-20 are everywhere 
with #14-18 the most comon sizes. Yellow Sally Stoneflies #14-16 are also present.

Hoppers and Crickets are also on the trout menu.  Get up here if you can.

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

The Flow Forecast is below:
