Green River Fly Fishing Report
July 8th, 2021
Caddis, Yellow Sally Stoneflies and PMD's are keeping the fish happy! The bugs are thickest on the A and B Sections. The C Section does not have great hatches right now - possibly caused by the double high flows that were done this season. The river is running steady at 850cfs. Terrestrial bugs in sizes 8-10 - Chernobyl Ants, beetles, crickets and hoppers will all produce fish as well. They just stocked the river with 12 inch rainbows at the main boat ramps - go ahead and pad your numbers !
Green River Flow Forecast 850cfs likely all summer. Please release fish quickly and in moving water, especially on the lower reaches of the river.
