  • Northern Utah March 16, 2014

    March 16, 2014

    Last updated: 03/16/2014

    The springlike conditions seem to be in control in Northern Utah and the Midges and the Blue winged olives are now hatching on a daily basis.  The Middle Provo has been very good with the large (buffalo) midges hatching usually in the early afternoon. Some good blue winged olive hatches have also happened in the last few days. The Lower Provo is fishing very well also and the Blue winged olives are hatching almost every day. The sunny days the BWO hatch is not as strong and the fish have been hunting down the BWO nymphs. The cloudy days the fish have been rising to the BWO's on the surface. The Green is fishing well some midges and BWO's and the streamers are working also. We are running our "best of day" floats on the Green $350.00 for a day float on the A section, only a couple of weeks left for the "best of day" discounted float. The Weber is up a bit from where it was and is also fishing well now the water is clear and fish are rising in the pools to Midges and some BWO's. The nice weather has brought out many early season fisherman, the last week especially on the Lower Provo. The Weber is a nice alternative to escape from the crowds right now. We have restocked almost all the fly bins at the shop and we have a bunch of killer midges and Bwo' s her for you the try out, Passage's cripple parachute is a new favorite, and Harrop's adult midge is a must when the large (buffalo) midges are out. We are excited to put the flood and store closure behind us now almost all the new gear for 2014 has arrived another fan favorite is the new Simms Headwaters large sling pack. Enjoy the nice weather, have some fun with all the small bugs hatching and catch some fish on small dries.

     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.
