Provo River Fishing Report 7/17/17

The latest Provo River fishing report is good! Flows are down and the green drakes are hatching in abundance. The Middle Provo has more drake activity than the Lower, although both are worth your time. Flows are still high on the Lower, though they’re much more manageable than in weeks past.

This is the time of year when the tube hatch is in full force. Remember to be mindful of rafters and not to start too many arguments over who has the right to be in a certain spot in the river. The Lower Provo gets crowded this time of year due to floaters, while the Middle is more crowded with anglers.

Green River below Flaming Gorge Reservoir 6 – 12 – 17

Time

Green River Fishing Report 6/12/17

 

The Green below Flaming Gorge Dam is a frustrating – yet rewarding – fishery at the moment. Flows are still high at 8,600cfs – but the cicadas are out! If you hit the water first thing in the morning you won’t have a problem getting fish to eat. Sizes 8 – 12 are fishing well.

On Saturday, 6/10/17, a few anglers hooked into fish on nymph rigs, but it’s far from effective. Jigging through the deeper holes is a better option and if you can hold in one hole for a few moments to let the jig sink, the fish usually hit on the first twitch. Streamer fishing is best in the evening towards night, with things picking up from Secret Riffle downstream to Little Hole.

The fish below came off the A Section of the Green on Friday, 6/09/17.

Provo River Fishing Report 3/25/17

 

The Lower Provo River, from Deer Creek Dam to Olmstead, is flowing high, around 400cfs. The water is clear, though. The high flows have displaced the fish and they’re not stacked in runs like usual.

The BWOs are finally popping, in addition to midges. Fishing warm days with overcast weather will produce good dry fly action. If they’re not taking dries, try an egg pattern. The rainbows are beginning to stage for the spawn, so all the fish in the river are eating eggs. The fish pictured below took a pale orange egg a few days ago.
