Default Hams Fork

Heading up from SLC to fish the Hams fork this week. Its my first time venturing from the salt lake/northern utah area to go fly fishing. Anything i should be aware of on that river? I understand i can pay a small fee to fish the section between viva naughton and kemmerer? Just a drop box for your money or something? Thanks! And anybody with any fly tips....id love to hear them!

River on the ranch between the lakes is closed for the season. Re-opens May 1. You can still fish below City Res. down to Kemmerer though. Probably tough with the winter weather and low flows. Plan on ice. You can fish the Green as a back-up plan too, only 45 minutes or so from the Ham's.

Awesome info!! Thank you very much! That just might be what we do. Stop by hams and head on up to green if its not looking extra fishy! Just incase...is the green still fishable with streamers this late in the year? Or mostly down to dead drifting small numphs and miges?

Mostly nymphs and midges, but they will chase streamers, more so later in the day if there's been any "heating" (sunshine). Dead drifts with small stuff are your best bet in both places. It's pretty damn cold this morning.

If you are planning on fishing the Green below Fontenelle, just realize that it is closed to fishing from the dam to the cable on the north end of the Weeping Rock campground (closed Oct 1 thru Dec).

It is cold. Agreed! Thank you. Gonna fish the green from little hole down. Or maybe start a bit farther upstream around the dam. Not sure yet. Gonna be wading regardless of where we fish. Hams or green. Little hole or farther upstream near the dam a better wading area? Or really doesnt matter?

Now the Green below the Gorge, you'll get some reliable fishing and warmer temperatures! I've been down there a few times recently. There will be some BWOs starting around 1:00 or 2:00, lasting 2-3 hours. Midges scattered in the slower water above and below Little Hole. Up or down is a push, but there's more slow water upstream from LH. More easily-accessed water too, however far you want to walk. The further, the better. Good fishing in the run just below Dripping Springs. Also good fishing right at, and just below LH.
