Green River - Below Flaming Gorge, Utah Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Get ready for some possible Cicada fishing! The water is coming down and we do have Cicadas! Fish a Cicada and cover lots of water fishing all the fishy looking water and let the good times roll! Fish a streamer or a deep nymph rig until you start to notice fish rising at which time switch to,small Baetis and Midge dry flies. 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!

Techniques & Tips

Fish a Cicada dry fly and cover lots of water fishing all the fishy looking water and let the good times roll! If the dry fly fishing isn't working try nymphing deep and fairly heavy with prospecting nymphs such as orange scud, worm and egg patterns also fish small grey and olive scuds.

7-Day Forecast

Water levels will return to normal over the next 8 or 9 days and as the water comes down Cicada fishing might get good! Nymphing deep will continue to produce good fishing!
