Utah Fly Fishing Report For May 20, 2013
Best Fly Fishing Option: Middle Provo River
Lower Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 550 CFS
Flows are fluctuating right now on the Lower Provo River, as the water rises and lowers lots of insects are being stirred up for the fish to eat and it is also pushing fish into the soft edges of the river so wading isn't as necessary and most of the fishing can be done from the bank. A couple of our senior Utah fly fishing guides were on this section over the weekend and had a lot of success. If you choose to fish the Lower Provo River please be careful while wading, as flows have been peaking in the afternoon and then lowering in the evening. The patterns that are most effective are sow bugs, stoneflies, and larger mayfly nymphs. Check out our
guide serviceThis may not be the ideal spot for everyone right now due to the flows. However this section is fishable and can be good fishing, but the best option right now for the Provo River is the middle section in the Heber Valley.
Middle Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 300 CFS
The middle Provo River is the best option for those who want to stay local. There are lots of mayfly nymphs in the water so having them in sizes 18-14 as well as stonefly nymphs and sow bugs will be your best options. Other options for fishing right now are Diamond Fork, Huntington Creek, or Fish Creek.
Green River Fly Fishing Report
Blue wing olives are hatching on the green and the fishing is great this time of year. Many fish can be taken on dry flies and emergers as well as nymphs. Having Mysis shrimp and scuds as well as beatis nymphs and some midges is a great fly selection for this time of year on the green..
