Green River Fly Fishing Report - September 11, 2020
The recent snowfall on Green River has slowed the fishing down. The weather is supposed to get back up in the 70's which should bring the terrestrial dry fly fishing back to life. Small ant patterns and large Chernobyl Ants / Hoppers have been our best producers.
As for hatches there are some Pseudocloeons and Tricos coming off around 10am. Both bugs are very small - sizes 22 or smaller. The Tricos spinner fall is around 10:30am. Matching the hatch is very tough - try using a small ant pattern to tempt trout rising to these little dries.
Red Creek is running and turning the lower river off color. Streamers or big dries tight to the banks will move fish on the lower river.
The flows have decreased slightly and are now averaging 1,600cfs. They are fluctuating daily from about 1,200cfs to 2,000 cfs daily.
Green River Flow Forecast They are fluctuating flows for power generation.
Current Flow Level - 1,600 cfs
Red Creek: Dirty - 3 feet visiblity. It might get worse as the snow melts and usually takes 3-5 days to clear up.
