with No Comments

Springtime Run Off has started

 

Green River

The Green River has seen a big flush of water the last few days!  Flows are up to 1550 at Warren Bridge today and the clarity is, well, let’s just say it’s Brown!  The fishing is going to be hard the next few weeks on the Green!! The higher up you go on the Green the better the Fishing.  Good luck if you head out!!  Flies that have been working are big dark streamers. Black and Green articulated seems to be the most productive!!

 

New Fork

The New Fork is is up to 900 cfs today and has not seen a major change in flows or color.   The window for fishing on this river in the next few weeks is unpredictable, but as of Now, it’s open and good!!  Water has good visibility and fish are eager to eat!!  Stop by the shop if your headed out!  Flies and fishing conditions are changing daily so check in for an update!!
