Provo River and Weber River 100-300 CFS

Flows on the Provo River have been dropping and should soon be at winter minimums. We still have a good amount of water storage from our wet year so flows may vary as they adjust levels in the reservoirs over the winter to accommodate snow pack. Fly fishing should remain average to good though out the winter months. Best times of day will be the warmest temperatures from mid-morning through late afternoon. Winter bill of fare is small midges, scuds, sow bugs, BWO, san juans, and small streamers. The browns will begin to stage for their spawn soon on the Weber and Middle Provo. The spawn will start in November and go through Christmas on the Lower. Please be careful where you wade through next spring. As we get into winter the fish will move into the deeper pools where they can control their body temperature. The lower the water temperature the more you will have to place flys directly in front of fish as their metabolism slows. The shorter the days get the less time the trout will be active. Dry fly fishing will remain good at the warmest part of the day most of the winter with small midge and BWO patterns. Use a 3 wt. rod and size 20-24 flys for good presentation with 6x tippet. Nymphing is best with 5x leader and a 2 fly standard rig on a 5 wt. rod. If you would like updates on specific areas please call, or email us.

Hope to see you on the water
