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. Located south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the Green River is a full day float trip option for those anglers looking for a fly fishing experience outside of the Jackson Hole area. 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 fishing Wyoming’s Green River, the 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. Prime times for fishing the Green are typically June thru early August. The fishing later in September, as the evenings cool, can produce enormous hatches of caddis, bringing fish back to the surface, but the true sport is for the large browns beginning their fall spawn. Hopper dropper combinations and streamers produce some explosive fishing at that time of year.
