Upper Green River Fishing Report
Flows at Warren Bridge: 1650 CFS
Flows near La Barge: 4760 CFS
Todays Upper Green River Fishing Report leaves me blown away at how drastic the changes have been recently. Last week at this time it was snowing and blowing and today there’s not a cloud in the sky and the high temp is gonna be 80. For the folks who follow these reports it’s obvious i like to use data and charts to illustrate what’s happening on the rivers. When you look at the chart at the top you can see just how high the flows we’re up until now. The flows were 2-3 times the 30 year average which means the month of July looks to be great and after that we’ll just have to see. But the good news is that most of this water gets captured at the Fontenelle Dam, which is the first dam on the Green River and is an amazing tailwater fishery!
Meanwhile we saw some off color water yesterday from a few rogue storms that dumped their load on the Wind River Mountains where the Upper Green River is born. It’s important to remember that there is no dam on the upper reaches so we’re at the mercy of mother nature.
There have been some stones, mayflies and caddis dancing around and it seems as though the trout will start looking up soon for the surface bite. We have guides out all over now so please give us a holler @ 307-413-0669 for the latest report and/or to book your trip or email; [email protected].
The time has come for another fantastic season on the Upper Green River! Be safe out there!
