Provo River Fishing Report: Blue Wing Olive – Hatch

Lower Provo (Below Deer Creek)

Provo River - RainbowThe “Blue Wing Olive” hatch is in full swing on the lower Provo River. The river is running at 101 CFS which is great for sight fishing and clear water conditions. The “Midge” hatch has been heavy through out the entire day. The “Blue Wing Hatch” is starting around 11:00 a.m and lasting until 3:00 p.m. With the lower water levels it’s been a blast fishing light weight, leader and tippet with micro sow bugs and baetis nymphs. BIG trout are eating in the shallow water. The dry fly fishing has been good too on the Midge and BWO size 20 – 22. GO FISH. See you on the river – WASATCH GUIDE SERVICE
