Fishing Report

The Rivers:
The Green is high (1400 cfs) at Warren Bridge, and is fishing good. The Gray Drakes have started along with Golden Stones, Salmon Flies, and P.M.D.'s. What this means is the dry fly fishing once again is great. The big fish are looking up and will take nearly anything buggy on the surface!

The New Fork is fishing almost as good as the Green. The river is still off color a little, but the hatches are on. Streamers are the best for the New Fork. Bright patterns like Tequeelys, Big Horn Specials, and Trick or Treats are the best.

Meadow Lake:
If you have never been, you need to try this one. Meadow Lake is full of Grayling. These fish don't get big (16 inches is a big one), but they have a hell of a lot of fight. The best way to catch a Grayling is with a Zug Bug or Prince Nymph sz. 14. Use a floating line and let your nymph slowly sink. The Grayling will find it. If you see any surface action, try a small stimulator or caddis pattern. Grayling are fun when they eat on the surface.

As for the rest of the area, all the small streams are beginning to calm down from the runoff now. Plenty of Caddis hatches as well as smaller Mayfly's, Parachute Adams and Elk Hair Caddis are all you need for brookies in small streams.

Remember a Trout was meant to be caught more than once.

This report will be updated as often as the bugs change, so we change it weekly throughout the summer months.
