July 2nd, 2020 Fly Fishing Report - Utah's Green River

The Green River is fishing incredibly well right now. If you have small dry fly skills you can catch a lot of fish! Caddis, Yellow Sallies and PMD's are the main courses with a few terrestrials thrown in the mix for dessert. The cicadas were solid this year but they have seen their last days of 2020. The current hatches should last a few more weeks.

The flows are now stable at 1,020cfs. While this is not ideal it is definitely better than base flows of 800cfs. Flows are set to remain at this level until further notice.

PMD's, Caddis, and Yellow Sally Stoneflies are all sizes 14-16, with a few size 18 in the mix.

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

Current Flow Level - 1,020 cfs

Red Creek: CLEAR - subject to daily change
