Park City Fishing Report
There is not a single moment, throughout our fishing season, when our rivers and streams are more alive with insects and active feeding fish. Runoff has peaked and flows are beginning to normalize to consistent summer levels. The middle section of the Provo River has cycled through a much needed flush and we’re beginning to see consistent hatches of big bugs on this system and throughout the Uinta basin.
In fact PMDs, Drakes and Stoneflies are generating good fly-fishing opportunities almost everywhere. Thunderstorms, cooler temperatures and overcast conditions are in our immediate forecast and these days will serve as a catalyst for excellent mayfly hatches.
It is the Fourth of July this weekend and we anticipate a heavy dose of angling pressure, especially on the Middle Provo. So, be patient and respectful of one another. Get there early, find your water and throw some pmd spinners while you wait for the Drakes to pop. Recent productive Drake patterns – “Hairwing Drake” sz 10 and “Laser Pointer” sz 12.
Can’t stand the crowds?
Don’t forget the Weber. These weather conditions could be a game changer with the PMDs.
Upper Green River
Regionally, the Upper Green is beginning to come down and we are starting to witness ideal conditions for dry-dropper fishing, especially from the boat. Water temperatures seem to be holding and the next two to three weeks should provide for some truly excellent shots at big fish. PMDs, Yellow Sallies and Caddis are plentiful throughout the system. We still have some prime dates available and welcome any and all inquiries (435-631-9933).
Enjoy your holiday weekend and we hope to see you on the river!
