Fishing the Green River

I hit the Green River back in September when I visited Park City, and the fishing was great--lots of of fish taking huge dry flies, scuds, and streamers.  I went back in the spring for two days on the water.  This time the fish were keyed in on BWOs that were hatching.  I had fun fooling nice fish on dries before I switched to a nymph rig to get some bigger fish.  I didn't land any monsters, but I had a great time on the water.

First fish: a nice, healthy brown.  Pretty average out here

Another nice brown with some big teeth

Nice, heavy, pregnant rainbow.  I couldn't grab her by the belly--too full of eggs!
