High Water Once Again Folks
Now that the super intense storms have seemed to have passed from the past few days, we have high water once again folks on the Upper Green River and New Fork Rivers along with all of the tributaries. The rivers are still on the rise so be very careful out there. One of our guides was up on the upper reaches of the Green River on Monday and there was a huge cottonwood tree that floated right next to them. The river is not that wide up there, so it was a close call. Not to mention, the river rose over a foot while they were on it over a period of about 5 hours. They endured sleet, hail, snow and wind which made the experience challenging. The best part of the experience for the client was the fish were on the bite most of the time they we’re able to cast. That was on Monday, June 18th and the client said he felt like he was the only one on the planet that day. Pretty cool.
To illustrate the high water issue see the press release from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department below.
Pinedale’s Airport boater access on New Fork temporarily closed
The Boulder Bridge on the New Fork was passable on Monday and by yesterday morning it had rose significantly as seen in the photo below.
As of this morning the New Fork flows have increased over 2000 cfs since yesterday morning and are running double the 30 year average. See the graph below. WHOA!
Moral of the story; we’ve either cancelled or rescheduled our trips for today and several of our guides are out today scouting our other options so please call us @ 307-413-0669 to get the most recent update or email; [email protected].
