Utah Fly Fishing Reports
Utah Fly Fishing Report For February 25, 2015
Best Fly Fishing Option: Lower or Middle Provo River
Lower Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 100 CFS
The Lower Provo River has been fishing awesome. Midge hatches have come earlier this year than last year. We have caught the majority of our fish on Midge dry flies but we have also done extremely well on midge larva, midge pupa and midge emergers. In particular, the 90-percenter midge has been our #1 dry fly. The phantom pupa has been our number 2 fly, with midge larva in tan, red, olive and black all being great as well. Although every day is unpredictable, we have done the best from about 10 o'clock to 3 o'clock. 6x tippet is a must but we have been using 7x tippet and increasing our catch rate by at least 50%.
Middle Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 148 CFS
With consistent midge fishing every day on the Middle Provo River, we are enjoying a very good early season start. Subsurface flies that have been producing a lot of fish for us. Midge worms in olive, red, black, tan and brown, the Phantom midge pupa and the 90%-percenter midge have all been really great flies for us. In addition to midges, the ERF sow bug in tan is also responsible for catching a lot of fish lately. As with the Lower Provo River, 6x tippet is a must and 7x tippet is even better.
Green River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 1730 CFS
The Green River is fishing quite normal. Midge pupa and larva are producing in the morning and the afternoon. Dry fly hatches have not been as predictable on the Green River as on the Provo River right now, but fish are sipping emergers and pupa in the back eddies most days. Morning and afternoon are much better than the evening right now.
