Green River Fishing Report for October 25th, 2012

Flows: Steady at 800

Hatches: Small BWO's in fair numbers, a few October Caddis out.

There wasn't much change between last week and this week with exception of heavy snow this morning. Instead of fishing, I made and destroyed a great snowman with my daughter. I still think that there will be some dry fly opportunity as the weather is supposed to improve this weekend. I would also suspect that the cooler temps and snow will begin to encourage a few fall rainbows and brown trout to procreate. Usually the spawn really gets going around the 10th-15th of November and continues well into December. While there are differing opinions about fishing spawning fish, please be respectful of those who may not share the same views as you. I have witnessed some strange encounters over the years here and on other rivers.
Dry dropper continues to be my best fishing with the same droppers. Eggs, worms, and zebra midges. I have talked to other guides who have had some success deep nymphing (10-12 feet) with small BWO imitations, around 20-22. In lower light situations streamer fishing has been available and some good fish have been caught. Black was my best color, ginger is traditionally a good color this time of year as well. On calm days there are still pods of rising fish to small BWO's. I noticed a lot more fish rising in eddies this week. This is a great time to fish the lower river with low crowds. The fall colors have started to set in on the fish and they are at their most gorgeous in my opinion. Come and take advantage.
good times and dancing lines,
Ryan
