Green River below Flaming Gorge Reservoir 6 – 12 – 17

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.
