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.
