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.
