The Bureau of Reclamation has announced the potential for full power releases and by pass releases (i.e. 8500 cfs) for the Spring Release. No exact date has been set but 75% of these flows have begun between May 24th
and June 4th. These flows are to aid the Razorback sucker larvae downstream and are combined with the unrestricted flows of the Yampa R. and are targeted for 18000 cfs. BOR will try to avoid these change in flows from occurring during May 24th-27th (Memorial Day weekend). Please note these dates are not specific and an updated notification will be sent before releases are changed below Flaming Gorge. Flows will remain at the average flows we have seen throughout May until we receive this notification. Water temps are presently 43 degrees. Stay Tuned!!

NYMPHING: May continues to see excellent nymphing
opportunities on both the 'A' and 'B' sections as the BWO's and Midges have continued to be present every day in good numbers on the River depending on the weather, with some of the rainy and cloudy days showing greater hatches and the sunnier days less so. Early morning the midges are present and late morning to early afternoon brings on the Blue Wings. Zebra Midges (black especially), BH Grey soft hackles and grey soft hackles, frenchies, iron lotus, and numerous other baetis patterns are productive right now.

DRY FLIES: The blue wing olive mayflies continue to provide some excellent opportunities to the angler who is patient and willing to spend the time each day to target fish that are keying on these small bugs. You have to be patient and find the right time and be in the right place
when looking to fish to fish keying on these small bugs. Standard Parachute Adams, CDC baetis, GR Specials, Comparaduns, Thorax Duns are but a few of the patterns that work along with various cripple patterns.

Having said that we are now entering that special time of year when the Cicadas that the Green River is famous for has arrived! These large terrestrial bugs love the warm weather and have been showing up in reports from guides each day coming off the River ! Many have fished them with clients already on those warm sunny days with good success!

Fish a Lovejoy's Cicada, Carl's Cicada, Grizzly Cicada, along with many other black foam patterns available in our shop for the next few weeks and enjoy some of the best dry fly fishing the Green has to offer all year! On warm days think Cicadas and enjoy!

STREAMERS: Streamers h ave still been productive, especially on the lower stretches ('B' and 'C'). We have a great supply of Galloup flies right now in the Shop (Dungeons, Mini-Dungeon's, Barely Legals, Circus Peanuts, and Peanut Envy patterns) A Goldilocks or Ginger Bugger are excellent also.

The Restaurant, Fly Shop, Guide Service and Store are now open every day from 6:30 AM to 10:00 PM. Remember we have rafts, catarafts, drift boats and other watercraft available to rent! 

Tight Lines and remember to pinch your barbs!
It's warming up and it's about that time of year again.  Have you already rented your rafts?
