Today we fished the Middle Provo from 11:30 to 3:30. Fish were aggressively taking dries when we first arrived, but soon after around 12:30 the risers diminished. Nymph fishing worked well all afternoon. Small BWO nymphs worked well, and once again some very nice sized fished were caught. This is a great time of year to fish, and a guided Utah Fly Fishing Trip is a great fall adventure!

Flies that worked today:

Dry Flies:

Foam Caddis (sizes 14 and 16)


Dragon Warrior (sizes 20 and 22)
Iron Lotus BWO (sizes 20 and 22)

Today’s flows were: 180 cfs

Right now is a great time to fly fish the Middle Provo. The spawn is coming on and the browns are becoming very aggressive and their coloration is amazing! Some of the biggest fish of the year are currently being caught on the Middle. There are daily BWO hatches, and the large October Caddis are buzzing in the air daily. There are great opportunities for dry fly fishing, and nymphing is still produces great numbers of fish.

Today we started by fishing near River Road in the Heber Valley. It was a typical October Saturday with the river crawling with fishermen, but like always the fish handled the pressure very well. We nymphed from 8:30 this morning until around 12:30. The fly of the morning was the San Juan worm, both red and brown. We caught an occasional fish on a two-toned zebra (red and black), but the worm out produced everything else we tried by far.

This afternoon we moved up river toward the dam where we found aggressive fish that were keying in on small BWO nymphs. Some very nice fish were caught and it proved to be a great day on the river.

Flies that worked today:

San Juan Worm
Zebra Midge
Iron Lotus BWO (sizes 20-22)
Dragon Warrior (sizes 20-22)

Today’s flows were: 180 cfs
