Green River Fly Fishing Report
October 14th, 2021
The fishing is decent on the Green River. The nymph fishing is consistent with small bugs. A lot of the guides are fishing a nymph rig with a wooly bugger as the bottom fly. Small Terrestrial dry flies will work when the weather is nice, Hoppers, Ants, Beetles, and Crickets drifted well will all produce. Dry dropper rigs will work on the B and C Sections. The flows on the Green River have dropped a little and are fluctuating daily, which has made the fishing inconsistent. The dry fly eats are cautious so pausing on the hook set is important. Streamers have been hit or miss, try mixing up retrieval speeds and changing colors.
