Upper Green River, Wyoming

Only two-and-a-half hours from Park City, the Upper Green is a spectacular trout fishery. Park City Fly Fishing Company is one of few outfitters that guides on the Upper Green River below the Fontanelle Reservoir. This particular part of the Green River drainage is home to some of the largest and hardest fighting fish you will ever have the chance to catch. Park City Fly Fishing Company offers float trips on the Green River from March-July and mid-September to the end of October. You will consistently have opportunities at fish in the 18-22” range, with a chance of a much larger fish.

The Upper Green River is a high-desert fishery with the feeling of tranquil solitude. With the Wind River Range in the background, it makes for some spectacular scenery. On your float, it is not uncommon to see a variety of wildlife such as moose, deer, pelicans, bald, and golden eagles. This fishery is remote and will at times test your skill as an angler. It is a small price to pay when you realize you haven’t seen another boat all day and have the chance of catching a fish of a lifetime. Let the experts at Park City Fly Fishing Company show you what we consider one of the best fisheries in the country. Advanced booking is encouraged to secure prime dates.

Upper Green Double RainbowEvery time I have fished the Upper Green, I, and my fishing partner, have caught trout that are worthy of being compared to those found in Alaska: 20″ Snake River Cutthroat, 23″ brown trout, and a 24″ rainbow trout are three such examples. The Upper Green River is truly a great trophy fishery and can stand side by side the best fly fishing rivers in Alaska.
