After this last week’s deluge, the water’s on its way back down and the fish are ready to rock and roll!  We’re getting into prime dry fly season with bugs popping up everywhere.  The water’s still a bit high to sneak under a couple bridges, so check in before you go and we’ll let you know the latest.

  The Fishy Stuff:

New Fork River:  2160 CFS @ Big Piney.  The New Fork has a bit of tint to the water but it’s fishing well.  We’re sticking fish on a mix of dries, nyphs, and streamers.  Big Golden Stones, PMD’s, Callibaetis, and Gray Drakes are the ticket for dries, with nymphs being a mix of stones and attractor patterns in sizes 10-16.  Streamers are yielding big eats, with olive and yellow being the ticket the past few days.  Bridges on the Town, Boulder, and Remmick stretches are still questionable depending on the size of the boat you’re in.  Check in before you go, getting stuck is no fun for anyone.

Green River:  1370 CFS @ Warren Bridge.  The Green is dropping fast and clearing after this week’s rain.  Bugs are pretty similar to what we’re seeing on the New Fork, with the addition of some worm patterns thrown in.

Seedskadee:  2760 CFS @ Fontenelle Dam.  Foam, foam, and more foam.  Circus peanuts, chubbies, and water walkers are bringing big fish up to the surface and action has been hot the past few days.

Lakes:  The backcountry lakes up to about 10,500′ are mostly open and fishing well.  Action is starting to cool down on the big frontcountry lakes as water temps creep up.  Damsels, chironomids, and caddis are popping on Soda.
