Utah Fly Fishing Report: Trout moving into new feeding lanes.

Lower Provo (Below Deer Creek)

photo (42)From last fishing report things have really changed on the lower Provo River. The river is now running at 543 CFS. With river levels going up as much as they have this past week, the trout have moved into new feeling lanes. Typically, when any river goes up the fish tend to move into the slow water. Sometimes they end up in deep runs but they also like shallower water close to the banks. Big Sow Bugs and Baetis nymphs on a bounce rigs have been a good rig lately. The month of May on the Provo River offers some of the best fly fishing conditions in the country. The big fish love to come out and play. Be careful crossing and we look forward to seeing you on the river. – WASATCH GUIDE SERVICE
