Green River Fly Fishing Report January 1st, 2020

Updated: Mar 11

Happy New Years ! We wish all of you the best in 2020 !

The fly fishing has been solid on warmer days. Streamers have been effective on all three river sections - especially on the lower stretches of the river. Small nymphs have fished well on the A section and Upper B Section. The takes on nymphs are very delicate as the fish are in their slow moving winter mode.

There are still a few brown trout 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.


A Section: Midge dry flies, small nymphs and streamers. ​

B Section:  Fish small nymphs about 9 feet deep on the upper B Section. Streamers are fishing best on the lower B Section.. ​

C Section:  Streamers all day

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