Outlook

The bugs are out, and the fish are eating on the surface! We have seen a massive drop in water levels with some cooler weather, and now it’s steadily rising again. It is, however, doubtful that we will see more than a few hundred CFS rise on the Green and New Fork before it stabilizes and we enter prime-time dry fly fishing.

Green River

Flies to try

The Green is once again bringing up the rear in terms of visible rise in water levels, and that poses a great advantage for dry fly fishing. Golden stones, PMDs and some Caddis have been hatching, and the fish have finally found them. Dry droppers are still the key mid-day but plenty of fish are coming from top-water.

New Fork River

CFS

Flies to try

Chubby Chernobyl, Paradrake, SJ Worm

The New Fork has seen another significant rise, and the water is a bit stained, but just as many bugs have been hatching as on the Green. Golden Stones make up the majority, but small hatches of Drakes are moving as well. With the water color, worms are also still a solid bet.

Flies to try

The Green below Fontenelle hit a season-high of well over 3500 CFS but has been heading down rapidly in the past few days. Bugs are out and about, and fish have become more aggressive with streamers.

Bighorn River

CFS

Flies to try

Sprout PMD, Micro-Chubby, TB Nemec Stone Jig

The Bighorn has recently receded from its largest flush of the season, with flows exceeding 6,500 CFS. While it was mostly a subsurface game, expect to see more action happening on top. PMDs, stones and other bugs have been spotted, and fish have found them, often sipping meals in slack waters and sloughs.
