That Green river is for city slickers.
WDFW made the good one a gene bank.
FAA KING MORONS!!!!!!!
I COMPLETELY disagree.
I fished BOTH Greens. I caught tons of fish in both. My fondest memories are from the northern Green. I'd start the morning under the 18 bridge. Then I'd hit the corner slot below. Then I'd slide down into the car body. More mornings than I can count, I'd hit the tailout of the car body and finish my limit on that red streamer.
A quartering cast with a slow sink line would present the fly for any fish that were just arriving in the hole. I would watch as a V wake started to follow my fly. This was followed by what I called "shaking hands with the fish". The following fish would pop my fly into his mouth like a pop tart and turn. This was followed by a panicked run and jump. This happened so often that the guys up in the meat of the hole started to say mean things about me>>>>>>. LOL
I caught many fine fish on the southern Green, but by then the luster was lost. It didn't feel nearly as new or wild. The canyon on the northern green is as rugged and wild as any. Icy creek is a tough spot to fish but always provided a few fish.
I even had a close encounter with my first bear. The trail does a double back near the bottom. As I approached the bottom, I saw a "dog" knocking over trees in his effort to run away from me. I realized it was a huge black bear and it scared the CRAP out of me. I still fished that morning and caught a chrome hen. From then on though, I was armed...........
The northern Green's proximity to the "big city" is unfortunate but it WAS one of the great ones for this young angler...........
