Flows near La Barge; 672 CFS

The Upper Green River Wyoming Fishing Report near Pinedale Wyoming is Tricos and Hoppers for the main course of dry flies with your smattering of bwos, pmds and caddis. On the hotter brighter days the hopper has been quite productive and when the bite starts to wane, put a dropper on to keep the bite rolling. The water temps have been on the rise again, but with the current forecasted temps and clouds starting to appear again, which are going to be a huge welcome! As the water flows continue to drop, the fish will start to school up in the pools, so it’s imperative to be as sneaky as humanly possible. The streamer bite has been quite productive as well and will only get better as fall approaches. Keep in mind to pick your sinking line sink rate accordingly for best results when throwing a streamer. Another favorable result of the lower water temps has resulted in lower moss and algae rates throughout the entire drainage, which is so nice not having to clean your fly off after every drift!

On many of our days on the water lately we haven’t seen a single person out, which is AMAZING to experience. Give us a call to book your fall fishing adventure and we’ll look forward to head hunting and stripping streamers for some BIG FISH!!! Just imagine yourself on the water without the crowds, golden leaves, cool temps and the prospect of a trophy trout.

The Snake River Jackson Hole Wyoming Fishing Report is STONEFLY MANIA!!!! The fish are keyed in on the stones and do yourself a favor and get out there! The flows are ideal and so are the water temps. Looking at the forecast ahead the weather looks to be nothing short of ideal. There are still caddis in the afternoon and evening and on the hot bright days the hoppers are a go to, for sure. We’ve also been seeing a lot of action on ant patterns; both carpenter and cinnamon respectively. To keep the action going throughout the day don’t hesitate adding a dropper below the hopper or stonefly.

Flows at Moose: 3470 CFS

Flows Below JH; 4060 CFS

The latest Snake River Jackson Wyoming Fishing Report is the action has been getting better every day and the Snake River is in fine shape and setting up for a September to Remember! Look for Caddis in the mornings and PMD’s in the afternoons. The best action is found either tight to the banks, structure or in the riffles and seams. There’s been a few reports of the Claassenia stones around so foam imitations are working well. On the hot and bright sunny afternoons get your hopper tied on and use a dropper to keep the bite rolling. We are seeing a lot of interest in the power ants in both black and cinnamon bodies.

To book your trip please call 307-413-0669 or email; [email protected]. Tight Lines and get out there!!!

The Upper Green River Fishing Report is she’s holding steady, thankfully! Sorry for the hiatus from reporting on fishing conditions but we’ve ALL been working as hard as humanly possible since mid June sharing the goods with all of our clients. I’d say the hatches this season, so far, have been as prolific as it can get, thanks in part to the steady and consistent flows and cool water temps. We’ve had so many afternoon and evening thunderstorms the past few weeks I’m encouraged that the August fishing will remain consistent. That being said, on the bright sunny days get out early for the best opportunity and on the cloudy and cool days we’ve seen the dry fly bite last through the better part of the day and the evenings have been epic. The bite is still PMDs, BWOs, Caddis, Yellow Sallies, Mahoganies, Tricos and add the terrestrial entourage on the hot and sunny days! Add a dropper to the hopper as well come mid afternoon to keep the bite rolling. For those who can pick pockets the streamer bite has been highly productive as well.

We’re anticipating an epic fall experience and have some select days still available and they’re going fast, so to book your slot; please call 307-413-0669 or email; [email protected] Tight Lines!

                          Big Smiles!

The Upper Green River Pinedale Wyoming Fishing Report today is the bugs are really starting to pop and as the flows continue to stabilize, the fish are populating their typical habitats. The past few days have seen the afternoon temps rise so get out early! We’re seeing fish chow pmds, drakes and goldens! On the cooler mornings a dropper might get the bite going and as the bugs pop get you dry fly action on. During the afternoon sun when the temps are highest get your streamer in the game to keep the bite alive.

 

                             Thumbs UP!!!!

Snake River Fishing Report

Snake River Cuttie

6.29.2019

Flows below Jackson; 7500cfs

The Snake River Fishing Report from Jackson Hole Wyoming today is there’s bugs galore out there and the fishing yield is increasing every day! There’s caddis, yellow sallies and stones all over the place. The fish seem mostly interested in the caddis in the slower water below the riffles, eddies and side channels. Look for the water flows to increase as the temps do in the afternoons. There’s plenty of snow left to melt above 10.000 feet so the season is shaping up to be awesome! Be careful out on the water b/c there’s new strainers throughout the entire corridor so know your route before launching! To book your trip or to get the latest, please call us @ 307-413-0669 or email; [email protected]. Fish On!

Upper Green River Fishing Report

6.29.2019

The Upper Green River Fishing Report for the Pinedale Wyoming area is there’s a lot of snow still up high so it looks like we’ll have good water throughout the entire season, HOPEFULLY! We hiked up into the mountains to see for ourselves and we found that there’s a significant amount of snow above 10,000.

               Wind River Range

Thus far the fishing has been challenging dealing with the varying conditions but for those willing to be flexible, the yields have been well worth the time and effort! Check out this monster brown below, this amazing fish is why we all love to fish the Green River in Wyoming.

                   Monster Brown

As the water temps start to warm up were seeing more and more bugs every day and the fish should start looking up any day now. The overall cycle for the river seems to be several weeks delayed since we’ve had such cold weather. But, the past few days the afternoon temps are getting into the low 80’s so the flows are on the increase once again. If you’re looking to get out and experience this amazing piece of water or get the latest report, please give us a call @ 307-413-0669 or email; [email protected]
