To all the eager anglers out there, IT’S GO TIME! Peak runoff is behind us and river clarity is rapidly improving.
Water levels are still high and could make for tough wading conditions for the next week. However, fishing from the boat has been very productive. Your best bet for finding clear water is to head to the source.
The headwaters of the Green River is looking good above Tosi Creek, and reports indicate top-water activity is picking up. Caddis, PMDs, and even a few Salmonflies.
New Fork River
The upper stretches of the New Fork are running clear and fishing very well. Access issues exist (read below); however, our access to a private boat launch below the airport bypasses these obstacles, and opens up some great water that is seeing very little pressure due to the closures.
Access Issues and Closures
The airport boat ramp on the New Fork River is currently closed due to the access road having washed out. There is no statement from Game and Fish as to when the boat ramp will re-open. Other areas of concern include the bridges over the New Fork below town and below Boulder. Both of these bridges are extremely tight due to the high water conditions. Floating below the town and Boulder boat launches is not recommended.
Stay tuned for more information. We will be posting frequent updates as river conditions continue to improve. You’ll read it here first! Get in on these prime New Fork River conditions. Book your fishing trip today!
