Green River Fly Fishing Report 12/4/2019

Updated: Dec 10, 2019

The fishing has been best with small nymphs and streamers.  There are some midge dry fly opportunities on calm days.

The brown trout are spawning.  Please respect the fish and avoid the redds.  This will help allow the best fish in the Green River to pass along their genes.

Winter fishing is in full swing. The trout have moved into their cold water lies. Concentrate on the deep slow water and tail-outs for the most action. The crowds are gone, and the streamer fishing has been solid with heavy flies and slow retrieves.

A Section: Small nymphs, midge dry flies, and streamers  ​

B Section:  Streamers are fishing best, small nymphs on the upper B Section are productive as well. ​

C Section:  Streamers all day

Current Flow Level - 2,150 cfs - average Flows are fluctuating daily
