  • Northern Utah March 9, 2015

    March 9, 2015

    Last updated: 03/09/2015

    The mild winter weather continues here in Northern Utah, perfect weather for fishing and many Anglers are hitting the rivers, streams and lakes. Here is a short version of what we have been finding in our fishing travels. The Middle Provo has been fishing very well Midges are the thing and some of our large "Buffalo midges" are out there driving the fish crazy. The Middle has been pretty busy at times so be willing to walk a bit if you need more space to fish. The Lower Provo has also fished very well Midges in the morning and a short blue wing hatch in the afternoon, the Baetis will hatch better later in the month and on any cloudy or overcast days. The Lower is pretty busy on the weekends but weekdays are not too bad yet, lots of big fish in the shallows and on the edges, short suspended nymphs or dry and dropper should get very good results. We spent 4 days last week on the Green training a new guide. The Green is fishing very well now the flows have changed to a better pattern the river is staying at about 1800c.f.s. during the fishing hours, Midges and some Baetis are hatching. The fish are still willing to eat streamers, and they are now feeding a lot on the midges and baetis. Try fishing short suspension nymphs or dry and dropper on the slow edges, seams and in the eddies you should do very well. For the dry fly only folks many fish are now rising late morning through the middle of the day mostly in the eddies, lots of targets and they are not too selective yet. Bottom line: good fishing in many locations for those who are willing to go, nice weather forecasted, time to go and enjoy some of our great Utah fly fishing!

     Other Comments: New Zealand mud snails have been confirmed in this section of the Green. This exotic species competes for the same food as insects which then displaces the insects that trout feed on. In order to prevent spreading these invaders to other waters, wash all equipment with bleach and allow it to completely dry (drying and freezing seem to kill them) before entering other waters.
