 Green River Fishing report New fork brown trout

Pinedale WY New Fork Brown Trout

Our Jackson Hole fly fishing guides report current Pinedale Wyoming fishing conditions.  The Pinedale fishing report includes Green River fishing conditions, as well as New Fork River fishing conditions.

The Pinedale, Wyoming area is home to many streams and lakes. Highlights are the  Green River and the New Fork. The Green is a great river for all, while the New Fork is for the more seasoned angler, 12 hour days are not uncommon. These smaller and lesser known fisheries offer some of the best Brown Trout fishing in our region.   The Green River is a much smaller river than the infamous Snake River, what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with with the quality of the fishery.  The Green River originates in the Wind River Mountain range and flows all the way through Wyoming until in enters Utah in the Flaming Gorge Reservoir. The Green River flows through ranch land and sagebrush fields that are home to moose, mule deer, antelope and birds of many species. It offers a variety of species of trout, including cutthroat, rainbow, the hybrid cutt-bow, brown and brook trout. The season on the Green usually begins a month prior to the water clearing on the Snake, in mid-June.

This hot weather has done both good and bad things for the green river. On the good side it has really helped to wake up the bug life in the Pinedale area. There are many different hatches that the angler has to choose from. Most fish are still keyed in on grey drake patterns as well as big foam while we are seeing that others are moving towards...... read more

It is going to be a fun year on the Green River.  This year we have more normal water conditions than last year and should see the Green fish very well after a few years of high water.  Currently the flows at Warren Bridge are 1,340 CFS, this is up a couple hundred cfs since earlier in the week.  The clarity is relatively good for this flow and...... read more

The Green River is flowing at approximately 600 cfs at the Warren Bridge.  This level is fluctuating quite a bit due to increasing temperatures which are speeding up the snow melt.  The past few weeks have been colder and have slowed snow melt, but it looks like we are going to begin getting warmer temps and the snow will start melting faster...... read more

It's winter in the Pinedale area.  The amount of snow the mountains will bode well for fishing teh Green and surrounding waters this year.  The Green normally fishes a little earlier than the Snake and other waters.  The Green is one of my favorite rivers because of the abundant bug life, multiple species of fish and the intimate nature of the...... read more

The Green is flowing at 472 CFS, which is a little skinny for boats, but is ideal for wade fishing. The campgrounds up river from Warren Bridge are your best access and offer lots of wade fishing opportunities. Hoppers, Stoneflies and Drakes are still taking some nice brown trout. The Green has fished much later than normal this year due to...... read more

The Green continues to be the best game in town. Flows have been consistant in the 1,500 range. The hatches have been phenominal this year. Grey Drakes, Golden Stoneflies, caddis, PMD's and even the hoppers are starting. The spinner fall has been the fishes favorite time to eat consistantly, but they are always looking for a good looking meal...... read more

Flows are still high, but fish are eating dries and if you want to rack up the numbers, fish some nymphs. It's on!!! ... read more
