Utah's Green River

Fly Fishing on Utah's Green River is Like Nothing Else

Utah's Green River just might be one of the best kept secrets in fly fishing.

When it comes to amazing places to fish in the United States, Utah's Green River is often overlooked. As the largest tributary of the Colorado River, this winding stream makes its way through Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. For those who don't already know, the fishing in the Utah stretch can be unbelievable.

Just follow along on this journey and see for yourself why the Green River is such a surreal and amazing place to spend a few hours on the water.

Sure, the editing helps an awful lot, but this is a pretty dang good video. However, when the river flows are in your favor, the fish boil in the water. It's easy to see the American Indian heritage and perhaps even some rock art on the canyon walls in a few places. These days, though, some places offer more graffiti than actual art, but to a wayward fly fisherman, it's all the same.

There's still plenty of time left this summer to get something like this accomplished. With a quick plane flight into Salt Lake City, you can be on the water in no time. Most start out near Flaming Gorge dam at the national park and work their way down, but for the most part, there isn't a bad place to fish.
