|Fly fishing is all about finding a great location, preferably in
the middle of a hatch. The Green River in Utah was one such
place, but is it still?
The Secret Is Out
No less than five years ago, it seemed like you head to the
Green River and see few others along your little stretch of
paradise. These days, it seems like a freeway.
The Green River starts at Flaming Gorge in the far Northeast of
Utah. It then winds down through the Dinosaur National Monument
area before passing through the deserts of central Utah and
eventually flows into the Colorado River. The best fishing is
around Flaming Gorge where the scenery and water make for a
Perhaps it is just me, but this area of the river must have been
highlighted in more than a few magazines. There are all manner

Perhaps I was just there on a bad day. The Green River is so
nice that even a bad day is still a good day. What the heck, I
could've been working!
