Green River Fly Fishing Report

September 5th, 2023

2022 has been an amazing fishing year - one of the best producing seasons that I have seen in my 24 years on the Green River.  The fish are tired of getting caught and are currently being cautious.  Many fish are spooking 50 feet from the boat.  Anglers that can fish a small dry fly accurately at about 40 feet are doing really well.  If you can consistently cast the fly 2 inches from the bank you will get some really nice fish!  Less skilled anglers will work for their chances and need to take advantage of the opportunities.  The Tricos and Midges are thick and will bring up a lot of fish in slow water - bring your A game on these educated fish. The higher flows are keeping the fish healthy.
