Upper Green
River
Information




The very same Green River that joins the Colorado to form the Grand Canyon after going through Flaming Gorge canyon gets its start as a small glacial stream in the Wind River Mountains. Like the New Fork it dumps from the glaciers into a pair of lakes and emerges as a fast flowing, freestone river with a deep emerald color that give the Green its name. As it flows through the valley, it slows and begins to wind its way south. Bank structure provides holding ground for wild brown trout, while the freestone qualities created at the headwaters remain and hold a strong population of hard fighting rainbow trout.

The Green offers exciting fishing to any type of angler, beginner to advanced, fly or spin fisherman. Trophy browns and rainbows can surprise experienced anglers who work hard on the Green, but you don't have to be an expert to catch fish.
