Utah’s Green River, as it’s cool clear waters flow from Flaming Gorge Dam, becomes one of the west’s more prolific and consistent tailwater trout fisheries in the west. It’s journey begins deep within a narrow variegated sandstone gorge, before emerging into outlaw country and the more open and subdued alluvial formations that make up it’s topography.
We were one of the first to acquire a permit to guide on the Green River back in 1986. Since then, it’s become one of the worlds more consistent and recognized trout fisheries for Brown, Rainbow, Cutthroat and hybrid Rainbow trout, that can be found rising to your fly in the west. Although it has excellent aquatic hatches, it’s probably best known for the excellent terrestrial fishing it offers, in particular spring and early summer Cicada’s.
In 2014 Mat Lucas; a previous member of the shop crew, and guide, purchased our Green River Guide permit. His service is Western Rivers Flyfisher Guides. Since purchasing our permit, he’s significantly improved on the service offering shuttles, and experienced guides who will help you enjoy this diverse and spectacularly scenic fishery, especially if you enjoy having success fishing dry flies.
We can help you book your Green River guide trip or check on availability. If you’re interested in booking a trip, to best accommodate you, we urge you do do so at your earliest convenience, Matt’s busy and the calendar is filling up faster each year. Give us or WRF Guides a call. As your trip nears, we hope to see you in our shop before departing to help you get ready for your day on the water where ever your fly rod takes you
