Flow: Dropping from 1300 to 1100 this weekend.

Hatches: A Few small BWO’s and sparse Caddis. A few Terrestrials as well.

Hey passionate anglers, I would say that the river continues to be inconsistent. One day dries are good, the next the nymph fishing is better. Be prepared to be versatile. Small hatches in localized areas allow a searching angler to find rising fish. Small ants (#14-18) have been best for most guides. Subsurface, the fish are still keyed on scuds (#18-20).

I have pumped several stomachs in the last week. I have found predominantly scuds and ants. Attractors have been effective as well. San Juan worms on the nymphs and the classic Royal Wulff on the dries. I would suspect the fishing to improve as the weather continues to cool. This has been one hot summer. Late September through November is perhaps my favorite time of year on the Green.

I talked to our fisheries biologist Ryan Mosley today and he said last night’s electrofishing was awesome. The health of the fish is tremendous. I have continued to see larger fish over the course of this year. Ryan and his team has done a great job. On a wildlife note: There have been a lot of bear sightings in the area with the current dry weather. Remember to take bear precautions when visiting the Flaming Gorge area right now.
