Green River Fishing Report for Pinedale, Wyoming; Like many other outdoor industries that are at the mercy of Mother Nature, the fishing industry in Western Wyoming has not had much of a break so far. We’ve seen a dramatic influxes of temperatures, fluctuating water levels and high winds that have been trying us for some time now. All that being said; the bite has been amazing in the Green River drainage since runoff subsided.We’re seeing grey and green drakes, pmds, caddis, yellow sallies and even blue wings too over the past few days.
We are beginning to see the long term results of high temperatures that hit in the early Spring that caused an excess of the snow pack that feeds the Green River tributaries to melt earlier than anticipated. With water levels running only at 20% of the seasonal average, we will continue to be fishing/guiding the Upper Green River until the end of the month. With any luck, summer storms coming through the area will provide for water levels to rise and sustain quality fishing into August and into the fall. A cold front that has lingered from the weekend has pushed back early morning start times to mid morning when the fish begin to feed. Cold water temps have proved that a nymph dropper from a large foam pattern is the way to go to entice hungry trout from their resting places until the dry fly bite starts. Even with water levels dropping, the lower part of the river is controlled by the Fontenelle Dam, allowing our clients to successfully fish the waters of the Green River well into the end of our fishing season. The bite there has been amazing and we foresee that trend to continue.
