Green River Fly Fishing Report 7.26.10

It has been awhile since we wrote a report on  the fly fishing conditions on the Green and we apologize!  The river has fished well with some large trout being caught, especially on nymphs.  Flows are finally steady around 600 cfs, which makes the fishing a bit more challenging.  Dry flies must be fished tight to structure and banks, with emphasis on tight!  As flows recede, this will increase your chances of hooking into a 20″+ trout.  As temperatures continue to get warmer, the best surface fishing window is shorter, beginning by 8am and ending at the latest by 1pm. Large atttractors are still working, as well as Gray Drake, Yellow Sally, and PMD  imitations. Cripples and Emerger patterns will fool those picky browns in slower water along the banks and in riffles.  Streamers are best in the early mornings during low light conditions.  Best Flies:  #8-10 Melon Bellies,   #8-12 Olive Water Walkers, #8-12 Red Willie’s Ant, #16 Yellow Stimulator, #12 Quad Quill Drake, #12 Drake Spinners, #16-18 Pablo’s Cripple PMD, #6 JJ’s Special, #6 Olive Silvey’s Sculpin
