Fishing Report – July 17, 2017

The weather has brought a few storms our way in the afternoons the last few days and the weather has been a little colder too, which has helped clean up some of river. The pressure from fisherman is at an all-time-high and we are seeing boats piled up at Boulder on the New Fork sometimes in the 16-18 boats a day range. Remember to fish with the locals if you’re looking for a guide - real locals that fish this river year round and deeply care about the fragile resource we have.
Green River: Flows are down a little the last few days and the fishing is starting to pick up a little below Warren bridge. The water is still off-color but fish are feeding. Dropping a big stonefly or worm has been productive. Streamer fishing is always fun too. The Upper Green is seeing a lot of pressure too, so give each other plenty of space! Don't over-work runs and fish! Fight them quickly and keep them in the water as much as possible. Drakes, PMD's, Sally's, caddis, and Stones are the best bet for the top water action.
New Fork: Flows are been good for a few weeks and the fishing is good. Was great a few weeks ago and has slowly went downhill as the drakes have slowed and more and more boats have been down this little river! Dry fly action is short lived and head hunting is the best bet. Same flies for this river. Stop by the fly shop for some up-to-date fishing info, chat with the LOCAL guides and buy a few flies!
BOOK a trip with Two Rivers for a fall fishing trip--- BEST time of the year, NO crowds, Big Fish, and Lots of fish still eating Big Bugs!
