Re: Fishing Flaming Gorge Late May
Runoff is not a problem, but the water coming up twice daily for peak power production could be, and you don't want to get stuck on the other side of the river looking for a ride back across.
As far as the masses of people, once the warmer weather starts you always compete with the crowds. One way to beat the crowds is to fish below Little Hole as 99% head upstream instead. If at all possible I would consider mid-April instead, the hatches can be heavy and the crowds are much smaller.
Are you planning to wade fish or float?
