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..
