Utah Fly Fishing Report For August 21, 2014
Best Fly Fishing Option: Lower or Middle Provo River
Lower Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 253 CFS
Caddis fly fishing is fantastic throughout the entire reach of Provo Canyon both in the early morning and in the evening. Fish are also willing to eat caddis dries throughout the day. Although caddis dries are fishing excellent, we have been catching as many if not more fish on caddis pupa trailing about 18 inches behind the dry fly, just a few inches below the surface. Mayfly hatches continue to provide a steady source of food and we continue to do well fishing the nymphs, emergers and the dries.
The moss is beginning to grow in Provo Canyon but it has not slowed down the fishing. The majority of the Provo River within Provo Canyon is fishing awesome and moss is simply not a factor.

Middle Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 477 CFS
The middle Provo River continues to be the safe haven for those anglers who wish to fish the Provo River while avoiding the tubers in Provo Canyon. Nymph fishing is very consistent now with mayfly nymphs, sow bugs and caddis larva and pupa being the staple. PMD adults and emergers are still producing very well and continue to provide dry fly opportunity to those of us who just love catching fish on dries.
Green River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 1660 CFS
Crowds on the Green River have been less this season than in any summer in recent memory. Terrestrial fishing has been moderately successful but the evening caddis hatch has been great! We have caught a lot of fish on small shrimp, midge larva and midge pupa throughout ‘A’ Section. Cicadas and PMD’s were both fantastic in the early summer but have they are long since finished and are not available to the trout now.
