Utah Fly Fishing Reports
Utah Fly Fishing Report For February 25, 2014
Best Fly Fishing Option: Lower Provo River
Lower Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 100 CFS
The fishing on the Lower Provo River continues to get better and better as we move towards spring! Midges are active on the Provo River and opportunities to catch fish on dry flies and emergers are happening. Our Utah fly fishing guides have had success fishing midge larvae, pupae, and adult and emerger patterns, as well as soft hackle midge patterns and small baetis nymphs. Midge emergers are also yielding fish and we tend to fish these patterns more often as we see trout rising to the surface. We are seeing fish rise to take flies on the surface or in the film. We are beginning to see some sporadic Blue Wing Olive activity and a few adults have been hatching when conditions are right. However, we are still a ways away from the hatch being in full swing. When fish aren't rising nymphing a variety of sow bugs, midge patterns, and baetis nymphs are effective. Take advantage of these weather conditions! We couldn't ask for better fishing weather in February!Check out our
Middle Provo River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 144 CFS
The Middle Provo River is seeing great bug activity and fish are feeding both on the surface and below. Many of the same patterns that we are using on the Lower Provo River are affective on the Middle. Look for areas that have silt bottoms as this is were the midges like to live, and we have seen trout feeding in these areas. With the days being warmer this section of river is seeing more traffic due to its vicinity to Salt Lake and Park City. The Blue Wing Olive nymphs are starting to appear in this section of river and it won't be long until we see this hatch starting to pop.
Green River Fly Fishing Report
Flows: 817 CFS
Any time to fish the Green River is a great time to fish the Green River! Midge activity is increasing both above and below the surface. Mysis shrimp and small scuds are great the closer to the dam you are.
