Report and Pictures by Flaming Gorge Resorts Fishing Guide
Green River Fishing Report through 02/02/2021
Current flows on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam are starting the day around 900 CFS, increasing throughout the day to around 2600 CFS. Water temps are around 39 degrees & holding.
DRY FLIES: Right now you are looking for midge activity on the surface. If you see small dimples (look closely to see the trout's snout), odds are that's what they're eating. In that case, throw on a #24 Para Mating Midge or a #20-#24 Griffith's Gnat.
SUB SURFACE: Red or black Zebra Midges (IMO, copper colored wire is more productive than silver) in #18 (i'll size up to a #16 before changing colors or patterns), scuds of various colors (I've had good success with orange as well as darker tones like gray and purple), and of course the Gray Soft Hackle.
STREAMERS: Streamer fishing is still a fun way to bring fish to net, especially on those cool, cloudy, snowy days! Reach for Woolly Buggers in white, ginger, black and orange. Fishing them on a sink tip on a slow retrieve should prove effective when leading your fly along transition zones in the water. Fishing them under an indicator with a nymph (or two, in Utah you can fish three flies) is an effective method as well.
Our store is open! Current hours are 8am to 6pm Sunday-Thursday, Friday-Saturday 8am-8pm. It's been a mild winter, but still come prepared with warm layers, as well as a rain shell.
