Guiding On the Green River:
I love the Green River and have been fishing it monthly for the last seven years. The emerald waters and amazing canyon atmosphere make it a place to remember even if the fish are not cooperating. But that seldom is a problem with over 14,000 fish per mile from the dam to little hole. These fish are very healthy and stunningly beautiful. Making the Green River the ultimate destination for any angler to enjoy.
How Guiding works
To be a guide on the Green River you need hold a current river guide license issued by the state of Utah, and to be hired on by an outfitting company who holds a current river permit. There are some great company’s and good guides in the area. I currently guide out of Spinner Fall Guide Service and take all of my trips through this company.
Your Day On a Guided Trip
We meet at 7:30am or 8:30am in Dutch John, Utah. We go over conditions, gear, fly’s and what to expect for the day. You provide your rod, reel, leader, and I will provide fly’s and accessories we will use throughout the day.
We load up in a company vehicle that takes us down to the boat ramp.
We take the boat off the trailer and get or rods rigged up and start our float.
The Green River offers great fishing for a variety of techniques. Depending upon your preference we can fish drys, nymphs, dry dropper, or streamers. I am very open to fish any of these and will help you understand the skill needed for each of them. I will not force you to to fish a certain way, I know this is your trip and will help you achieve your expectations.
When the time is right we will pull the boat ashore and have a river side lunch that is often grilled chicken, brats, burgers, or sandwiches.
After lunch will will finish our float and with sore arms and new memories reach the boat ramp to end our float.
Our vehicle will be shuttled by a shuttle service and be ready for us at the ramp.
I will then load the boat on the trailer and will drive back to the meeting location in Dutch John.
Overall a full day guided trip is between 8-9 hours and everything is simplified for us to really focus on the fishing!
