Green River fly fishing report 6.12.16
The Green River close to Pinedale, WY treated us well this Spring before runoff! The Green became fishable mid April after some early runoff and we jumped on the chance. This was mostly fishing nymphs and streamers, but there were some dry fly eaters after it warmed up some and the BWO’s started hatching. There were a few rain cycles in May that sent flows up, but they quickly came back down to around 600 cfs. This is a great flow for floating and fishing the Green effectively. This was a lot of fun! We were able to catch some great brown trout and rainbow trout that were feisty and ready for a tangle. Again fly fishing nymphs and throwing streamers were in order – Stoneflies and Caddis were the main hatches. Currently, the Green River is at 2390 cfs and raging! There is a good bit of snow pack still in the Wind River Range so it will be a few weeks before we send our guides back down there. Until then, we will daydream of days like these…
