Provo River and Weber Rivers 100-200 CFS
Flows on the Provo River have been dropped to winter minimums. Flows on the Weber are still quite high for this time of year but still very fishable. Fly fishing should remain average to good though out the winter months. Best times of day will be during the warmest temperatures from mid-morning through late afternoon. Winter bill of fare is small midges, scuds, sow bugs, BWO, san juans, and streamers. The browns will be wrapping up their spawn soon so 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. During the period of Mid-December till beginning of February, when days are very short, the trout are only active for a minimal amount of time each day. 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. We will be taking a break for the winter months from new fishing reports as things are pretty constant.
