Green River Fishing Report - Behemoth browns and 'bows

I saw a picture on Facebook today of Ryan Kelly holding a big brown one of his clients caught on the Green this past week and I was hoping to see more of the beauty when he sent in his report. Ryan, as usual, did not let me down. Here's his report filed from Flaming Gorge Resort. Ryan said the big brown was "just a hair over" 27 inches. The "smaller" one hit the tape at 25.25 inches. "I've seen more big fish in the last two days than my whole guide life combined," he said.

Flows: Steady at 800

Hatches: Few BWO's, few Midges

With the fantastic September weather in November the fishing was fantastic. We caught a handful of fish on big dries and lots of fish on egg droppers. We caught some exceptional fish this week. Check out this weeks pics to see some cool fish. Each day the fish started to move more towards spawning areas. I would make the assumption that this weekend's forecast of snow will only further the procreation drive to make redds. With more moss than normal in the river, spawning redds stick out like a sore thumb. Look for gravel that looks almost white right now. Most of the spawning fish are rainbows at this point. I know, rainbows spawning in the fall? The DWR introduced fall spawners to the Green in hopes of more natural reproduction. For those not of the interested in fishing spawning fish, there are still a few dry fly opportunities, though you have to work a little bit. Streamer fishing has been hit or miss as always. I have seen and heard of lots of success on streamers. The traditional goldilocks or ginger bugger is always a good place to start. Olive or black sculpin have been productive as well. There are some big fish on the move right now and sometimes a big meal is what is needed to convince these picky hogs.

good times and dancing lines,

Ryan
