Default Green River below Flaming Gorge

Got a quick stay-over in Rock Springs, WY next Friday night and looking to take my first crack at wade fishing the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam. My plan is to be in Dutch John a little before first light and fish from dawn 'til around 10:00a and then hit the road for home. This is more of a "feel it out and get the lay of the land" type of quick hitter, but I would like to get into some fish as well.

So my question for those with Green River experience, would I be better served to access the river just below the dam and hike it downstream, or drive to the Little Hole access and hike it upstream?

Also, if anyone has fished it recently (or ever) and could offer up some tips to a Green River Greenhorn it would be much appreciated.

Tight lines!

little hole is the better wade fishing. It is too bad you coukld not stay longer. I have only done well once at that time of day on the river.

Joe: I like Little Hole, at the dam you park your car up high and then after fishing have to climb the staircase to the parking lot.
Check out this hatch chart: Hatch Chart
Looks like Terrestrials, Caddis and PMD's.

Well, unfortunately not much to report on the "catching & releasing" - although I did manage one fairly small rainbow around 7:00am and one long-line release on a fish of unknown proportions.

I got in the water around 6:15-6:30 and was back at my vehicle before 10:00 as I had to get on the road. So, good scouting mission anyway... beautiful place, lots of wildlife... I'll have a better feel for the flow rates and wadeable areas before returning which was the true intent anyway.

'Til next time...
