Green River Fly Fishing Report -July 29th, 2020

The Green River is fishing solid with terrestrials, droppers, and small dries.

There are Tricos out and the spinner fall is around 9am. The Tricos are more prolific on the lower river, but the hatch is slowly moving up the river. There are also some Yellow Sally Stoneflies, PMD's and Caddis still around on all 3 river sections. We have been experiencing afternoon thunderstorms so everyday has been a little bit different out there.

Try a purple fly on a cloudy day.

The flows are now averaging 1,740cfs. They are fluctuating daily from about 1,100cfs to 2,000 cfs daily.

Green River Flow Forecast It looks like we will have low flows all summer.
