Park City Fly Fishing Report

Lower Provo River:   Is located 30 minutes south of Park City.  Fishing again is very slow.  We fished the Lower twice since last weeks post.  The result was only a few fish each trip.  The fish we were picking up were in buckets in about 3 feet of water.  There are absolutely no hatches happening at this time unless you count 4 lonely midges on the surface.  There absolutely no dry fly action at this time and won’t be  until probably  mid February.  The concentration of fish will be in the deep pools and small buckets.  The fish that are eating which are very few are coming at the tail-outs of the pools.  Try fishing straight upstream to these fish.  They are very spooky with only 100 cfs coming down.   The fish we are catching are eating size 18 dark grey sows.  The fish we have pumped have shown scuds in size 20 or 22 and sows in sizes 14 to 20.  We have picked a few up on the rainbow warrior in size 18.  Patterns to try in order of effectiveness sows, scuds, rainbow warriors and small dark midge larvae.   

MIDDLE PROVO RIVER: Is located 15 minutes from Park City. This River is fishing a lot better than the lower. When I say better I mean catching 5 or 6 fish a trip. The river is sitting around 150 cfs. Like the lower the fish are concentrated in the deep runs and holes. Fishing the tail-outs have been the most effective way to catch fish. There is some midge activity. The crowds get nuts the later in the day you decide to fly fish. Fish thread body midges in sizes 18-26. The colors that are producing are cream and jet black. Using a rainbow warrior or Frenchie is also a good option.
