I’m happy to report that the Green River is really starting
to fish well. I’ve been down there twice the past few days and
have had a great time. The water is coming down and clearing
fast and bugs are coming off in droves. I plan on spending a
lot of time on it with clients in the next few weeks.
My friend Brandon from Colorado was introduced to the
upper Green yesterday and it didn’t disappoint. He fished a
combination of dries and nymphs, picking up several fish on
both. However the fish of the day (and possibly year) came on
a dry fly fished on 5x tippet. We found this guy feeding in a
back eddy and had to chase him down river for quite a while
before finally landing him.
Quite a fish that we’ll both always remember.
