Our most current Upper Green River Fishing Report is now becoming a true fishing report. It is a true miracle that we’re even discussing the possibility of fishing considering the huge amount of snowpack that was up in the mountains from the winter. It is VERY IMPORTANT to consider that this water shed has no dam until mile 170 so what we get, ALL depends on the natural elements.
Yesterday, we floated up in the forest, towards the headwaters and although the water is still running quite fast, we were able to find some fish that were willing to eat either a streamer, nymph or a dry fly. We saw several golden stones and a ton of caddis and the surface water is still chilly; hovering around 50 at mid day. You can see the 3 separate surges on the graph below that melted a ton of snow over the spring, which is the only reason why we’re headed into the summer fishing season this week. Make no mistake, the water is still running swiftly and it’s gonna take more time for it to settle down, but there’s opportunity for some good and challenging angling opportunities to be had.
After spending the winter in Texas it is so nice to be back in Wyoming. ESPECIALLY with the copious amount of water. The Upper Green River Valley is a very special place and yesterday I caught myself just sitting in the back of the boat, listening to the water run past and feeling like I’ve died and gone to heaven. Speaking of, The Upper Green River is heaven on earth! Look for Golden Stones to make their appearance soon, which we’re all super excited about seeing!
