Green River trip

Thought you might enjoy some pics from the Green River.

We were out there for 2.5 days and hiked either up or down from Little Hole each day. We fished the A section twice and went down into the B section once. We saw more and better quality fish in the A, but also a few more anglers. Overall, the crowds were way down due to the weather which ranged from sunny and calm to breezy and rainy to gale force winds and snow. We had it all.

BWOs came off each day from about 10a-3p, not a major hatch, but enough to get them looking up. Fish counts weren't all that great, but I managed around 6-7 good fish each day and I don't think I caught a fish that was under 14", they were in great shape. Our method was to cover river until we found actively feeding fish on top. We could have caught more fish if we would have just parked ourselves in a nice run and nymphed under an indicator, but really wanted to fish on top. Plus, the Green is so dang clear, it's much more fun to sight fish.

All fish were Browns and all of mine were either caught on emerger patterns. Mainly a #20 Brooks Sprout or a #22 Befus on 6x.

Wind is always a factor on the Green and we felt we had it good if it stayed under 15mph, but we had long stretches were it was gusting well over 25. I took a 4 and 5 wt, but would have been better off with a 5 and 6.

I hate to seem stupid, but what the hell is that thing in front of the fly reel.

Heah Bobsold....... I'm assuming you're talking about my tippet holder. It would look a lot neater if I didn't have spools from 5 different companies on there! Next time I go, I'll just take 3 spools......5x-7x.

I spent many days there in a former life. Great fishery, but getting more, and more pressure. Next time, float Section C. Not as many fish, but huge browns and no pressure. Section goes from Jarvis Ranch down to Swallow Canyon. During the cicada hatch, 20-inch browns are the norm. Incidentally, great pictures. Thanks for the post.
