Provo River (Lower) reports

Chris Grantham (GreenMtn) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: Fishing has been phenomenal and they're hungry for dries! Try a comparadun or PMD pattern, drowned or dry along the banks and slower moving sections. Fish are actively feeding and it usually only takes 2 or 3 well placed casts to get them to take it. They're also taking PMD emergers and foam black ants. (07/19/09)
Cary Thayne (carythayne) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Waters still a bit high but headwaters are fairly clear. Midge and Blue Wings coming off the water, but had little luck with dries. Had good results with San Juan Worm patterns. Use lots of weight to get down fast! (06/18/09)
Sal Motrutta (Four Seasons) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Lower Provo: 775 c.f.s. 43 degrees Fahrenheit

The Lower Provo River has come back to life on multiple levels. One's initial observations would note the increased "splash and giggle" presence on the river. The recreational boaters and tubers are out and about. Never fear though - the Lower River trout are well acclimated to such frivolity and will willingly eat right beneath a tube if necessary. Please be respectful of everyone on the river: even if you are not receiving the same respect in return. If need be - throw a ‘super-soaker' over your shoulder and dish it right back at ‘em.
Sub-surface fishing has been most productive on the Lower River. Sows have been top producers. Beware of poor sow bug imitations! Stop on by the shop and we can show you why certain sows fish and others do not. Beyond that: basic mayfly imitations, caddis larva and pupa and midge larva and pupa should produce the desired result.

Sal Motrutta (Four Seasons) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: The flows on the Lower River have finally caught up to what has been happening upstream. Deer Creek Reservoir is over 95% full and my suspicion is that the boys that rebuilt the spillway will have the opportunity to really try out their new toy soon.
The rainbows are on full spawn. I bring this up to increase awareness and respect – not to encourage anglers to rape and harass. It is difficult to pass by the brood stock on the river when they are this vulnerable. The question to ask yourself is “Do I like catching Rainbow trout on this river?” If your answer is “yes” then use some discretion about pulling those fish off of their redds.
Deep dead drift sow bugs, cased caddis and mayfly nymphs should get the job done. The Four Seasons sow bug is unique and a proven producer. Stop on by and test drive one for yourself! (04/29/09)

The Lower River has been the hot spot for the bugs and the anglers. While it is true that the angler presence is less severe than any ‘inner tube hatch’ that we may expect to see in the summer months – please do not be frustrated if you are not the only person fishing the river. Please be respectful of other anglers and their space. In the big picture – we are all brothers in fly fishing and need not to be causing contentions amongst each other. Fishing is great on the Lower River right now and that is indisputable. That does not mean it is the only ‘hot spot’ in the region. If you want to be a little more anonymous or if you feel sensitive about your space on the river - you may be happier exploring one of the multitudes of other options in our region. Feel free to call the shop and we can brainstorm with you about new places to fish. (04/21/09)

Provo River (Lower) descriptions

brian wimmer (brianwimmer) wrote - The lower Provo has been cranked up to over 1800 CFS for the required June Sucker runoff. The Middle Provo is also that high because of a rumored "flood bank testing". Deer Creek is 100% full so anything that goes in must come out now. Be VERY careful wading the river right now. The normal banks create a 3-4ft. ledge a couple feet off the new waters edge. The radical flows are not supposed to last long.
The fishing is still good sub-surface on size 16-18 sow bugs and dark mayfly nymph patterns (size 18). (06/08/09)
Andy Idema (aidema) wrote - The Lower Provo River is a wild brown trout fly fishing stream. Fly anglers generally nymph fish this stream but the Lower Provo does have prolific hatches that allow for great dry fly fishing. There is a seven mile stretch of the Lower Pro that is a blue ribbon stream (between Olmstead Diversion Dam and Deer Creek Dam) that offers excellent fishing. In addition to the browns anglers can catch rainbows and cutthroats. (08/16/08)
