I know this may not have anything to do with archery, but I am so excited I had to tell someone. This past weekend I took a float trip down the Green River coming out of Flaming Gorge Reservoir and we absolutely killed them. We were fly fishing and between two of us and two days of fishing we caught over 70 fish. Most were in the 18" range (brown trout and rainbow trout). I caught one smaller fish that was actually swallowed by a larger fish on the way to the boat, when we went to net the two fish the larger of the two spit out the smaller fish. Man I wish I could have gotten that monster in! Anyhow take a look at the scenery and a couple of the fish we caught.

Yep great place......I camped there for 3 days a few years ago and fly fished a good deal of the upper water below the dam. Definitely easier to fish in a drift boat vs. trying to wade fish. There's some DEEP water in there.

Nice pics!:)

When we got there on Friday we wade fished below little hole and did fairly well, we caught 13 fish in under 2 hours. The caddis hatch was unbelievable.

We are pretty lucky to have such a great place so close to us. I truly think the Green River is right up there with the Madison river, and the Henry's fork for great fishing and beautiful scenery. Here are a few more pictures.
