Green River Fly Fishing Report 7.31.11

The Upper Green River near Pinedale, WY continues to fish well, especially in the mornings.  Getting to the river early is key as the fishing slows down around noon.  If you can put on at daybreak in the BLM campgrounds sections and fish the Gray Drake hatch.  Spinner patterns are deadly until about 8am and then switch to emerger or cripple patterns.  Golden Stones are a hoot to fish at anytime during the day, especially on the sections below Warren Bridge.  Nymphing has still been productive with Yellow Sally nymphs, San Juan worms, and CDC Pheasant Tails being the best flies. With these flows, we should be able to float the Green for weeks to come, which is unusual for this time of year!
