Big ol' brown trout

Outlook

The rivers are still just about at capacity (especially the New Fork), but that isn’t stopping us. Being this far into the flush has given the Green and New Fork Rivers time to clear up a bit, and fishing has really started to turn on. Most of the fishing has still been subsurface, but with the expected drop in flows over the next few weeks, we think some bugs might finally show their faces.

Green River

CFS

Flies to try

San Juan Worm, Koffey’s Sparkle Minnow, Burgin Bugger

The Green is still high but has dropped a few hundred CFS and cleared up considerably in the mid-upper reaches in the past few days. Large nymphs are still good, but streamer fishing is picking up, and dry fly fishing is right around the corner!

New Fork River

CFS

Flies to try

Jake’s DB Rib Worm, Balanced Leech, Epoxy Back Stone

The New Fork is raging out of its banks, but practically the entirety of the river has cleared up enough to be very productive throughout. With the water so high, lots of food is still flooding into the system, so worms, large stones and leeches are the ticket.

Flies to try

Jaw Breaker, Jig Prince Nymph, Mid-weight Scud

The Green Below Fontenelle is very high right now as the water coming in from the Green and New Fork is staggering. The clarity is good in most places at about 3-4 feet. The fish are active, but getting flies in front of them isn't easy, so be on your A-game.

Bighorn River

CFS

Flies to try

Tung Jig Gray Perdigon, Parachute BWO, Rubber Legs

As expected, the Bighorn has increased its flows below Boysen Dam, but the clarity is still good. The dry fly fishing is getting better, but the primary food sources for the trout remain subsurface.
