Uinta River reports

Cory Roche (cbroche10) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Did well on the Uinta on Friday morning using a !~%$@% and !@#*&^& and caught some decent cut throat. Friday night we came back to the Middle Provo. The PMD’s were coming off but all we could put to net was 6 to 10 inchers as the big guys were not coming up. Used a variety of nymphs to try and coax a bigger fish to hit but no luck. The fishing was great other wise with a lot of top action. Sunday morning we fished the Logan River above the “Drop Valley”. This river looks like china’s army has been marching up and down both sides. I have to admit that I am saddened by this as this used to be the best river in the state to fish and now everybody fishes it. I had 2 kids drop right into a hole that I was working, walk up 5 feet and start fishing in front of me. I did manage to land several nice cuts and a few browns. I will go ahead and give up my “go to” set up for the Logan this time of the year as I don’t think it will matter much if anybody else gets up there. Use a Lime of Royal Trude with a double bead head Prince Nymph. Tie your prince with a RED goose biot tail. Size 16 to 18 is best. I would also recommend that you wrap the hook shank with led to get the prince down quickly as the runs are sometimes short on the Logan. Another good fly up here is of course the Caddis. Afternoons are incredible with a caddis with hits every cast. (07/20/10)
