Green River 1

Dawn patrol.... Regina and I Left the house at 4:30 a.m. Headed for the Green River. With temperatures warming and the snowboarding not so great we headed out in search of fish. Our goal is to be fishing by 10:00 a.m. With a 4 hour drive and an hour to hike we are anticipating the adventure.
Right on time....The "Gorge". Below the dam is the Green river.

The hike is a fun one. With spectacular views of the river and the landscape. The anticipation is growing stronger..... gotta get to the water pronto.

Well... the day was great. I had way too many LDR's (long distance release) a few FR (foot release) and picked up just one. I was out thinking myself. there was a small Midge hatch so I rigged and re-rigged...dry, dry with emerger, smaller dry with emerger, two dries, dry with nymph, smaller dry with micro dry...wam...wam... so small having a hard time hooking fish because lack of action I set the hook too hard. So micro dry it is.... what no hatch..ahhhh... Rig for nymphing lost a few. Tough day but a fun adventure. Tomorrow redemption!

Nice looking browns. Great colors!

Dinner time. Yep, that's right fast, easy, no hassle cooking! We are on a fishing trip not an eating trip. The more time you spend on cooking the less time for fishing :) Off to get some sleep. 9:00 P.M.
