She has been a tough one this year, with the fire, came a lot of silt which filled in a good amount of the holding areas for these fish. If you put in your time you will get some fish, ... morebut its nothing like it was in the past few years. Its unfortunate that the fire hurt the creek this badly, but Putah is a resilient river, and I look forward to seeing how she fishes in the months to follow. As always, small caddis, mays and midges with light tippet will get you on the fish. Plan on moving around a lot to find them though.

Fished with Larry and Ray today, just a half day, which is perfect for the amount of fishable water right now. Buffalo Creek is on round 2 of dumping in red mud. It had cleared pretty ... moregood after last week's rains but I guess we got quite a bit of snow up in the Bridgers and with the warm weather the last few days it's got the creek flowing good. River is MUDDY after the red cliffs. But with all that said we had a pretty good day. Hooked about 30 of these.

Lots of break offs today. Fat feisty rainbows on 5x. Baetis nymphs were our best bugs. Saw a few guys out there today throwing streamers only saw one boat get one. Other boats said no good. But it is a good option in the dirty water. Hoping the river clears by the weekend but we are forecast to get a little more rain. So we'll see. River is at 990cfs. And we have a few trips going out next week but still plenty of days available if you're interested. Also the dry fly fishing is still pretty good, at least it was on Tuesday when I went out with Adam. Besides the bwo's we are seeing quite a few caddis and a lot of fish are taking notice and even moving out of their feeding rhythm to eat them. And a minor psa, please respect the property owners' rights... it is private property from the first highway bridge below wedding all the way past buffalo creek and the red cliffs. We don't need this place turning into the reef. Have fun out there!

Much of the lower stream is on private land, so ask for permission before fishing on any private land. The river can be divided into several distinct sections:... more

(1) The section upstream from Mill Meadow Reservoir contains an excellent population of wild brown trout. Splake, tiger, and rainbow trout are stocked in Mill Meadow and Forsyth reservoirs and can enter the river from the reservoirs. An occasional brook trout can also turn up. There are about 3.5 miles of fish-able water in this area on Forest Service land, upstream to Mamoit Spring. Above the spring the stream is much smaller and becomes de-watered directly below Johnson Reservoir in the winter when the outlet gates on the dam are shut. Most of the resident trout are under 15 inches, but some much larger fall spawning brown trout can move upstream out of Mill Meadow Reservoir. Also, the stream can be turbid in late summer when water is being released from Johnson Reservoir, but clears up at the end of the irrigation season.

(2) The river is completely de-watered below Mill Meadow Reservoir downstream to the Bicknell Bottoms. Numerous springs provide perennial flows in the Bicknell Bottoms, where State Wildlife Resources property includes the Kay E Bullock Waterfowl Management Area. Because of the springs, this area is a cold water marsh with some decent trout habitat in some areas. Fishing is allowed in the Waterfowl Management Area, but hiking through much of the marsh can be treacherous because of soft mud and dense cattails. Although there are some good-sized trout, the Bicknell Bottoms is not a typical trout stream and it is difficult to fish.

(3) Downstream from the Bicknell Bottoms the river enters a canyon and flows for about eight miles on private land from the Old Mill to the town of Torrey. The river contains decent numbers of rainbow and brown trout but permission must be obtained before fishing. Fishing guides and a local private ranch have provided services for fishermen.

(4) Further downstream, river access is available south of Torrey on SR 12. Here, the river can be fished downstream in a roadless canyon for about nine miles into Capitol Reef National Park. About two-thirds of this section is within the National Park. The river is often turbid, but can be excellent fishing when clear. The trout population can change from year to year depending on flash floods, but some big brown trout have been taken from this part of the river. Because of declining water quality, the trout population comes to an end at the confluence with Sulphur Creek near the park visitor center.

Fishing any of these areas can be good with natural baits, lures and flies. Prepared baits work well for rainbow trout, but are not recommended for use in most of the river because of the predominance of brown trout. Other nearby fisheries include Fish Lake, Johnson Reservoir, Mill Meadow Reservoir, Forsyth Reservoir, Sevenmile Creek, UM Creek, Pine Creek, Thousand Lake Mountain and Boulder Mountain.

Flows are steady at about one unit most of the day and sometimes higher at night. As long as you’re on stable water that is not rising or falling, the green algae stays mostly confined ... moreto the bottom, and allows for fairly clean drifts. Indicator fishing with various caddis pupae and midges is very productive, and dry fly opportunities are there if the wind doesn’t whip up too strong. A huge variety of flies will work when trout are feeding as heavily as they are now, but for starters, look to Prince Nymphs, Tailwater Soft Hackles in Caddis Green, Sunday Specials, Ruby midges, Super midges, E/C Caddis, Lawson Caddis, Hi-Tie Caddis, and small Olive Wooly Buggers.

Flows have been off most days until lunchtime at least, sometimes later. There is good wade fishing on low water with midges, caddis, and scuds. Root Beer midges are a favorite, Sunday ... moreSpecials and Hunchback scuds are staples too, and a variety of soft hackles work great as caddis emergers. It’s a hoot to fish a bushy caddis like an Elk Hair with a midge dropper through the riffles.

Here is your Honest up to date Grey Reef fishing report. The Casper area has experienced heavy rains and wet snows the last few days. As a result it has blown out the Grey Reef reservoir ... morewhich has in turn dirtied the whole Grey Reef section of the North Platte River below it. There are 3 other options to fish that are fishing well. We will keep you posted on the Reef as it begins to clear up. Text, call or email me if you have any questions! Luke Keil/Owner/Guide

Here is your Thermopolis fishing report for the Bighorn in Wyoming. The fishing is sick! Lot’s of fish up eating dries. Big pods of fish up keying in on BWo’s. Fish are ... morealso chasing streamers especially with these cloudy days. Yes, the nymphing is great. Remember there isn’t a lot of access for wade fisherman. Your better off going with one of our fishing guides and having the most memorable day fishing you have ever had!

Utah fly fishing in the springtime can produce some of the most exciting fishing opportunities of the year. As the weather gets warmer and winter snow pack starts to melt, we start ... moreto see the rivers in the Park City area increase in water flows or CFS (Cubic Feet per Second). Many anglers think that when the bigger water rises that the Utah fly fishing is done until summer but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, spring is some of the most productive times to fish the Provo River, Weber River and other remote streams in Utah and Wyoming. Most of our streams in and around Park City are known as tail-waters (water comes from a dam), which means they are controlled flows. Unlike free-stone streams where the water is directly effected from natural snow pack, tail-waters tend to be less effected by spring time run-off and are more productive with higher flows. When the water starts to rise, tons of trout food like sow bugs, scuds, worms, stoneflies and mayfly nymphs get dislodged from the rocks and it sets up a feeding frenzy for the trout.

I want to share a few tips for fishing the higher water in the spring time. As the water increases in flows, the trout get pushed to the edges of the river. With the stronger current, the fish don’t have the sustained strength to stay in the middle of the river and feed. It is really important as an angler to stay on the bank or close to the bank and fish the inside edges of the river. Surprisingly, you’ll want to fish a shorter nymph rig, about 5-7 feet, now that the fish are pushed into the shallows. This time of year, it is always a good idea to check the water flows before you get out to the river. One thing to keep in mind is that it might not always be safe to cross the river with the higher flows. Please exercise caution, and approach the stream wisely. For more information on fishing in the spring check out my seasons page.

Lots of fish lately....No true giants; But hey, when the average trout is 17-19 inches and there is a realistic chance at an 8 pounder, things are good.... more

Water levels have increased at the border and the lake level is low. Typical water pattern so far. Bugs are popping and we should see some Mothers Day Caddis on the UC within the next 20 days :)
