Green River Fly Fishing Report February 2nd, 2020
Updated: Mar 11
Happy Super Bowl Sunday / Groundhog Day ! The warm weather this weekend has turned the streamer fishing on. All three river sections have fished well, with the best action on the lower stretches of the river. Small nymphs are producing on the A section and Upper B Section. The takes on nymphs are very subtle as the fish are in their lethargic winter mode. The midge dry fly fishing is hit or miss with the best action from 10am - 2pm on warm calm days.
A Section: Fish small nymphs about 9 -10 feet deep in the middle and tail-outs of runs. Midge dry flies will produce when you find fish rising. Streamers all day.
B Section: Fish small nymphs about 9 feet deep on the upper B Section. Streamers are fishing well throughout the entire 9 miles of the B Section..
C Section: Streamers all day - try mixing up retrieval speed and colors.
