Utah Fly Fishing Reports
Utah Fly Fishing Report For December 9, 2014
Best Fly Fishing Option: Lower or Middle Provo River
Lower Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 100 CFS
The brown trout on the Lower Provo River are nearing the end of their spawn. There are still many Brown Tout on the redds and many of them are tired and stressed from going through their annual ritual of aggression and spawning. As far as other food organisms go, there are many small sow bugs of a slightly darker color than normal that the fish are eating readily. In addition, there are midge larvae, midge pupa and a few adult midges also available to the trout. The best flies lately have been small nemo midges, a small sow bug and SMP midge pupa.
Middle Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 146 CFS
As the Brown Trout near the end of their spawn, every angler can find something to fish for and produce good results. Small midges have been hatching sporadically but most of our fish have been caught on midge pupa and midge emergers. Egg imitations continue to produce fish but the angler should use caution not to walk in areas with a clean gravel bottom so as to not destroy the spawning beds.
Green River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 1930 CFS
The green river has been great for those who want to make the drive. Dry fly fishing has been a bit slow but there are enough midges hatching to keep things interesting. Many of the Brown Trout are still on the spawning beds and for those who want to pursue them, this time of year is easy to fish the Green. Keeping in mind that these fish should be fought quickly and the angler should be mindful not to walk in areas with gravel bottoms.
