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.

Summer Mode – Green River Fishing Report
August 15, 2019
Green River Fishing Report – (8.15.19)
Flows on the Green are great for this time of year! Most of the drakes and stoneflies are finished but that doesn’t meant the fish aren’t looking for them. Small foam golden imitations, chernobyl and hoppers are getting some attention on the surface. Droppers like tungsten pheasant tails or bullet quills are quite productive. PMDs, Caddis and Yellow Sallies are rounding out the mix. Look for terrestrials to make a big play here in the latter portion of August.
