Green River Fly Fishing Is Hot Right Now

Insect hatches are now prolific on the Green River and fish are feeding aggressively. That is producing some of the best fly fishing of the year.

Brett Prettyman, writting for the Salt Lake Tribune, has this new blog post. Here are excerpts.

"Green River Fishing Report - Get There Now!

"I've been running a lot of info on the Green River these days and for good reason. As I mentioned may happen last year, the high flows in the spring/summer of 2011 flushed the river of years of sediment and gunk setting the plate for incredible insect production. The result is fat fish. The great thing about these fish is despite the abundance of food they are still willing to hit fake food so get there now."

The Salt Lake Tribune's Brett Prettyman his this article describing the survey. It is illustrated by a video shot last fall when the DWR conducted a similar survey. We've embedded the video below.
