Utah Fly Fishing Reports
Utah Fly Fishing Report For September 13, 2015
Best Fly Fishing Option: Lower or Middle Provo River
Lower Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 100 CFS
Fishing has been great. The flows on the lower have dropped down to winter levels. This has made it a little more difficult to fish due to the amount of moss still in the river. We are mostly fishing the shallow water and tail outs were most of the fish are. We have been fishing several different colors of egg patterns, midge larva, and midge adults. There are also some blue wing olives hatching as well if you want to catch fish on top. This time of year can be a lot of fun, but be careful to avoid walking were the fish are spawning. For the size of the midges we are using 6x tippet is a must and in some cases 7x depending on the size of the fly.
Middle Provo River Fly Fishing Report
The flows on the middle provo are also at winter levels. The moss is not as congested on the middle as it is on the lower provo, as a result we have seen more pressure on the middle provo than the lower provo. We are having good success fishing egg patterns, Midge larva, and Midge adults. We have also seen some good blue wing olive hatches as well. Like the lower provo most of the fish we are targeting are in the shallow runs and tail outs. The best time to fish is from 10:00 A.M. in the morning to late afternoon. The fish are spawning so be careful where you walk and how you handle the fish.
Green River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 1680 CFS
The fish on the green are in pre-spawn mode. We have been doing well on small midge larva, midge adults, and egg patterns. We have been catching a few fish on top as well with midge adult patterns. We are using 6x tippet for most of the midge patterns and sometimes even 7x depending on the size of the fly. Streamer fishing has also been very good, the browns are very aggressive this time of year when they are getting ready to spawn.
