Green River Fly Fishing Report 11/1/2019
Updated: Dec 10, 2019
The fishing has been good with tiny dry flies, small nymphs and streamers.
The brown trout spawn will begin soon. 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 came early this year. It has been very cold, but looks to warm up to normal temps soon. The crowds are gone, and the fish are still happily gorging on small bugs and small fish. Hoppers, Ants, Beetles will produce in the afternoon on warm days.
Streamers have been fishing well when fished slowly or on the swing.
Nymph fishing has been very consistent - use small bugs.
A Section: Hoppers, small terrestrials when it warms up. Use tiny dry flies to fish that you see rising.
B Section: Streamers, Big Terrestrials, and ant patterns. Lots of small fish can be caught on droppers.
C Section: Streamers are the soup du jour. Big Terrestrials will produce as well
