Green River Fly Fishing Report
November 21st, 2023
The brown trout have begun the spawn - please respect the beds and do not stand or anchor on them.
Midges are starting around 10am and Pseudocloeon (tiny BWO's) hatches have been occurring around 11:00am daily. These hatches are thickest on the upper A Section.
The adjusting flows are tending to turn the fishing on and off. The water temps are changing about 3 degrees during these adjustments. Streamer fishing has been good - especially on the B Section. River traffic is very light. We have guides available most days this winter. Your best bet is to watch the weather and pick the warmer days.
A Section: Midges, Pseudocloeon (tiny BWO's), streamers
B Section: Pseudocloeon (tiny BWO's), Midges, Streamers
C Section: Streamers
Hatches: Psuedocloen (tiny BWOs)
Tiny dries on calm days. On warm sunny days smaller Terrestrials will produce if you are persistent. For tippet: Take the hook size of your fly, and divide it by 3. This gives an approximate “X” rating of the tippet.
