A classic freestone river, wide open sagebrush fields and the glorious Wind River Mountains are just what are on the “surface” when spending a guided day on the Green River. Although the beauty of this landscape can, in itself, satisfy the most discriminating of outdoor enthusiasts, it is what lies below the surface of this world-class river that we are truly after. For fly fishers, the river’s special charms are prolific mayfly and caddis hatches and eager wild trout, including the native Colorado River Cutthroat. There also is excellent nymphing and streamer fishing for very large rainbows and browns. Hopper dropper combinations and streamers produce some explosive fishing during the summer season and fall months.

Terrestrials and PMDs – Green River Fishing Report
August 8, 2020
Green River Fishing Report – (8.8.20)
Flows on the Green are getting low but there is still plenty of good fishing to be had. Anglers will see best fishing opportunities as well as dry fly fishing opportunities during low light periods – morning and evening. Afternoons are getting warm, so be sure to land fish quickly and use the thickest tippet possible. Dry dropper fishing with leftover Golden Stones and Drake patterns have been productive. We are also hatches of PMDs and Caddis. Terrestials are making a large play as well. Large streamers during low light periods can produce some surprises!
