Green River - Below Flaming Gorge, Utah Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Fish Caddis, yellow Sally, and PMD patterns! There is a good hatch of all three of all three so look for surface feeders. Concentrate your efforts on seam lines and slow to medium moving water and pockets along with the bank. Walk softly and look in the water with polarized sunglasses and you should be able to spot fish! Streamers still working fairly well early morning and late.
