Green River - UT (Emery County)

Your best chance for fishing dry flies is still going to be with Midge, although there have been good reports of Blue Winged Olives around too. We are definitely seeing more BWO, but the hatch is still in limited areas, and the naturals are small. Look for pods of fish looking up in the slower tail outs of the deeper pools, and seams along the main current and back eddies throughout the warmer parts of the day. Dry/dropper setups with an emerger behind it can work for those picky fish not breaking the water surface.
If you don’t see fish looking up try nymphing the drop offs and seams leading into and out of the deeper pools. Bank and wade fishermen should watch pocket water and the channels arounds the rocks for sub surface rolling fish as they walk the bank. Fish the depth they see fish at, start lite, and add more weight till you find the right depth. Float fishermen will have good chances through the deeper runs and drop offs, fishing anywhere from 6 to 12 feet deep.
Streamer fishing has still been effective, fishing early and later in the day has been most productive. Think lighter colors on bright days and darker colors on cloudy and shadowy days.
