Well, that time of year we all dread has finally arrived. The Green River and New Fork River are both muddy, and unfishable with high runoff flows. We are closely watching our current snowpack and pouring over historical data to estimate when the rivers will return to a fishable state. Temperatures have been trending well above average over the last week. If that trend continues, our stream flows should peak over the next 7 to 10 days. It will still take some time for the flows to stabilize and clear, but we are hopeful for clear water by the 1st week of July. Keep in mind that this prediction is heavily predicated on continued warm weather.
If you are planning a trip out west, check back for an up-to-date report on the rivers and flows. Though the rivers are in runoff mode, there is lots of great lake fishing to be had. Book your stillwater fishing trip today!
