Recently, while fishing the Green River in Utah, I decided to ease my frustration and turn my camera to the rising fish, instead of failing miserably to fool them. The amazing water clarity and shallow depth allowed me to watch and track the rising fish. I sat and photographed for more than 30 minutes, before the pull to cast again became too strong. Eventually I did manage to a fool a few. The “in-hand” brown, likely the darkest I’ve seen, fell for a size 20 Matt’s Midge. Although challenging, the Green River below Flaming Gorge Reservoir is an amazing fishery that should be on everyone’s to-do list.
