None salt, none kayak, report Green river

Headed up to the Faming Gorge Rec. area for our annual trip.
4 days of Fly fishing the Green River.
Some Photos.




It was a great trip. I love this place.

Few things more exciting than catching a fish on a dry fly.

Killer pics... killer trip!

Beautiful fish! I've thought about jamming up there a couple of times - so I'm really interested in hearing the details of how you guys do that trip.

Flying from San Diego to Salt Lake City is pretty reasonable but I kind of would like to drive and camp out for a few weeks to explore some of the area. Which way did you guys do it?

It looks like you fished the walk in areas- I've read quite a bit about them. Any tips about just showing up and walking in?

I fly fish lots of saltwater so I'm equipped for streamer fishing with all kinds of sinking lines - I need to learn more about the trout side of things. Do you think a streamer-heavy strategy would work well there?

Thanks in advance!

It is MOSTLY a Nymphing that time of year, but you can find dry fly areas to catch fish. If some sort of hatch comes off. Midges and B.W.O. that time of year.

WE stay a Red Canyon Lodge, but there is really good camping in the area also.
There are other places to stay (cabins) also.
I fish a 6wt floating line nymphing rig. also carry a 5 wt for drys if they decide to show up all of a sudden.

Yes I walked in mostly at Little Hole this year, in years past I also walked from the Dam down steam.

Beautiful pics. I've always wanted to fish here. Did you fish sections A, B, or C?
