Guide Report:

Water flows are changing rapidly and set to be increased for run off preparation as well as a gate exercise that will take place at the end of this month.  Fishing conditions are becoming more variable as more new water begins to change color and river flows continue to rise.  Getting away from town may be the best option with both the Henry’s Fork and Green River a short drive away.  For those interested in staying close to town, streamers have been finding success in deep water.  Throwing your streamer of choice on sink tip can offer plenty of reward, just be sure to get them low.  If you do find some clear water with rising fish, your best bet is still to go with small emerging baetis and midge patterns.  However, little black stones have been popping up along certain river banks which may justify throwing a small black caddis.  Additionally, there is always the chance of finding some skwala action if the water your fishing can make its way above that 42° mark.
