Provo River Fly Fishing Report April 15th 2021
Spring is officially here and we are starting to see some bigger bugs out on the water. Midges are still fishing great, but the Blue Wing Olive is starting to make an appearance. The fish have been known to key into BWO’s, so don’t let them catch you off guard and be sure to have your blue wing box.
The flows on the Middle Provo River are still perfect at about 144cfs coming out of Jordanelle Dam. Dry fly fishing is best from around 11am-2pm. A small Griffiths Gnat or Morgan’s Midge will surely make some fish rise. Evenings have also been producing fish and they have been willing to eat small midge patterns and sow bugs.
The water on the Lower Provo River is starting to rise with a flow of 124cfs coming out of Deer Creek. With the recent warm temperatures, the flows will start to increase. Be sure to check the flows for yourself before you head out. The fish are stacked up and the fishing has been consistently good all spring. You should expect the fish to eat sowbugs, midges and small blue wing patterns.
The Weber River is low! It is hard to find good water on the Weber right now with only 25cfs coming out of Rockport Reservoir and about 5cfs coming out of Echo Reservoir. All sections of the Weber River are really low, but you can still find some fish in deep buckets and holes.
Overall, Provo River Fly Fishing is excellent in the Spring with the emergence of the first major Mayfly hatch of the year the Blue Wing Olives . Utah gets plenty of spring hatches and the fish are actively feeding. If you are interested in booking a trip with us, please call (435) 487-9288 or click this link to Book A Trip.
