Green River Fly Fishing Report 7.12.10

The Green River has come back around after a brief increase in flows from snow melt.  A few late storms dropped up to 5 feet of snow in the Wind River Range high country which resulted in a second runoff period for about a week and a half.  Flows are bumping up again due to recent rain showers to around 1200 cfs.  The fly fishing has been pretty stellar with reports of brown trout up to 26″ taken recently.  Nymphing has been the most productive with #8-10 Yuk Bugs, #10-12 CDC PT’s, #14-16 Sparkle Pupas, and Yellow Sally nymphs.  The Gray Drake hatch is on,  but more whitefish than trout have been eating them off the surface.  Look for this to change in the next week as flows level out.  Some trout are eating the Golden Stone and Yellow Sallies dries and will continue to do so.    PMD’ are showing as well…
