River Conditions Report 4/11/2017

with No Comments

Due to recent cold snaps, water clarity is back to normal and the fishing has been excellent! Nymphing is a go-to at the moment; however, streamer fishing is always a great choice, as a lot of hungry fish are looking for a bigger meal. As long as clarity and conditions allow, both the Green and New Fork Rivers will continue to fish well through the early season window before the main runoff starts.

Pale-colored worms, Prince nymph patterns, 20 Inchers, Black Pheasant Tails, and Zebra Midges have all been fishing well. On the streamer side, bigger bites such as Dungeon patterns, Circus Peanuts, and minnow patterns have all produced big fish. Below is a breakdown of the current CFS reports from the USGS gauging stations.

New Fork River – 1070 cfs
Green River at Warren Bridge – 212 cfs
Green River below Fontenelle – 5710 cfs

Due to record snowfall, please note that run-off is going to be of a particularly large scale this year! As of right now, water clarity is pristine and water is fishable. Once runoff starts, we plan on high and muddy conditions through the end of June. If you are planning on floating with us this summer, we would highly recommend coming between end of June through the end of September. As it continues to develop, we will update river conditions.
