GREEN RIVER FISHING REPORT:
This is my effort to keep you posted on the current fishing conditions on the Flaming Gorge Tailwater of Utah’s Green River.
It will be updated weekly, but understand that it is not the word of god, simply my observations of the fly fishing conditions as they seem to be.
(all rankings are in + (+++++ being highest)
REPORT FOR 9/22/2013
WEATHER: ++ (the weather has been rather inconsistent lately.)
CROWDS:++(HIGHER RANKING MEANS LESS CROWDS WILL BE EXPERIENCED)
The Dry fly is still fishing, with varying levels of success. Crickets, Ants, and Hoppers, in sizes 14-10 have been doing the best for me. Triple Doubles, and Double Uglies have also been performing well on all three sections.
Section A: ++
Sz. 10-12 black and brown terrestrials have been doing the best for me at varying levels of success. Long drifts far from the boat are working the best while floating. While wading small triple doubles, and double uglies seems to be getting the best results. The bottom mile of A has been the best fishing of it all lately for me.
Nymphing and streamers, are also receiving varying levels of success. Small mayfly, midge, and scud patterns will probably treat you the best.
Section B: ++++
Tan, Black, and Brown terrestrials have been doing the best on B. Earlier in the day, small seems to be doing better, while later in the day Larger Black ants, and Tan hopper style bugs have been performing best.
Streamers might treat you very well, as well as some nymphing. I haven’t been throwing much of either, so I am not fully aware of what is working best. But small midge, and tiny mayfly nymph imitations would be the best bet.
Section C: ++++
The lower river has just barely gotten over the muddied waters of Red Creek following the last couple weeks rain storms. But, with the current storms happening, there is a high likelihood of it being blown again.
Black, Brown, and Tan terrestrials have been working the best for me down here.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see some fish feeding on the streamer. Or small mayfly nymphs.
