Green River Below Flaming Gorge Dam
The fishing on the Green river has changed up considerably. The late summer terrestrial fishing has taken a dive due to the colder weather settling in. We are still seeing some fish come to smaller beetles, crickets and ants, but the terrestrial fishing has not been super productive. Try smaller Chernobyl ants, hippy stomper’s, para crickets etc in that 14-16 size range. If matching the hatch is your preferred technique plan on fishing Blue Wing Olives and midges size 20-26. The fish eating bwo and midges are typically podded up in specific places on the river. Targeting those pods will yield your best success with the smaller dries. Nymphing has produced some fish for our guides, but it has been slow at best. If nymphing try using small midge and baetis patterns as well as worms, scuds and sows.
While the nymphing and Dry fly fishing has slowed down some, other techniques have been producing some amazing fish. The Streamer bite is ON and our guides have been seeing serious success stripping streamers throughout the day. Decent numbers to the boat, but the best part is that in addition to good numbers, some excellent fish have been seeing the inside of our nets as well. This is a great time to get out on the river with a 6 or 7wt rod slinging streamers. If you want to catch the fish of your lifetime, now is a good bet.
