The Green River

The Green River
The Green River begins in the Wind River Range near Pinedale, Wyoming and is the main source of the headwaters of the Colorado River. This river works for all levels of anglers, especially those that want to catch bigger fish and also find hatches of insects to fish to. There are plenty of deep pools that house large fish and the wide open terrain of the surrounding banks allows for easy casting.

The Green is most famous for the Grey Drake Hatch during June and early July. This hatch allows for some great action on the river just as the waters are starting to clear. The river holds browns, rainbows, and cutthroat and they are all ready for a good feast at this time of year.

The Green River meanders through several private properties and it is during these times that anglers must stay on the boat. In public access areas, there are some great spots to grab some super hungry fish looking for exactly what we are feeding them.

The Green River is a fast hour’s drive away and our guides will pick and drop you off up at a local hotel in Jackson or Teton Village.  We provide full day trips to the Green River to allow you to get the most out of your fishing experience and to allow for ample drive time. Fly fishing on the Green River can be a truly rewarding experience, especially when you nab the “big one!”
