    I will be meeting up with a buddy in Salt Lake City in September and we have decided to go over to fish the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam. Can anyone recommend a guide for the Green that you've had a good experience with? Thanks!

    Kenny, who guides for Trout Bum 2. Check in with them in Park City. Great fishing and best shore-side lunch you'll ever have. BYOB, of course.

    If you don't want to spend the $$ on a guide and are decent on the oars/ good at reading water, you can rent rafts or a drift boat at the shop in town. I've always done that but our trips are as much about the drinking/ camping/ guy time as it is catching fish. Guides are always great, just another option for you....starting in the A section and camping in the B section is always a great 2 day trip!!

    Gordon Tharrett, one of the owners of Trout Creek Flies in Dutch John, has been guiding the Green for over 25 years and would be my first choice. I doubt that you could get on a trip with him at this late notice but the shop has other great guides too.

    Trip report: My friend and I had a great time on the Green this week. Thanks to Freestone and fe2head for recommending the guides at Trout Creek flies. We were able to get a day with Gordon Tharrett, who now owns Trout Creek flies, and he was a great guide, as Freestone said. Also fished with a guide named Boomer, and he was equally excellent. It is dry fly time, and we fished primarily with a fly called a Triple Double, which Gordon created. I couldn't believe the quality of fish in this river. We caught mostly browns with some rainbows mixed in. We didn't see a fish smaller than 15 inches - average size was about 18 inches. Anyway, thanks to all who replied to my inquiry. I really appreciate the help.

    Thanks for the great report! It sounds like a fantastic trip. It's awesome that you got out with both Gordon and Boomer. The GT Triple Double is a great pattern. I've been thinking of tying it in bigger sizes as a soft water steelhead skater.
