Fly Fishing Report - Utah's Green River June 11th, 2020

The flows on the Green River are dropping 350 cfs (about 3 inches) daily. The flow schedule is posted below. Flows will be at 900cfs on June 20th. The month of May was very dry and did not help our water supply. May is historically one of our wettest months.

The cicadas are out and very thick on the A Section - unfortunately there are not many present on the B or C Sections. The dry fly fishing on the A Section has been awesome and should only get better as the flows continue to drop. The B and C Sections should start to fish better soon but are both currently fishing average. The cicadas are small - size # 8-10. We have heard a few mondo cicadas but have not seen any yet. We believe that we will see them fairly soon as they tend to be on a 17 year cycle and 2003 was a banner year for them!

PMD's, Caddis, and Yellow Sally Stoneflies will also start showing up in the coming weeks.

Green River Flow Forecast It looks like we will have low flows all summer.

Current Flow Level - 3,900 cfs - Changing Daily

Red Creek: Murky but still very fishable on lower B and C Sections - subject to daily change

A Section: Cicada patterns are producing some amazing fish !

B Section:  Dry dropper rigs and nymph fishing have been best. Below Red Creek Rapid fish streamers or dry dropper rigs. ​

C Section:  Big dry flies and streamers are your best options. There have been lots of humans self quarantining down in Brown's Park and the C Section has seen unprecedented pressure.
