Small baetis mayfly (BWO) and midge patterns are working well. Midge hatches are a bit sporadic, but early afternoon seems to be a good window. Small patterns tend to be most effective during the winter on the Provo river. We recommend using size #20-#24 midge nymph, caddis nymph and baetis mayfly nymph patterns, as well as size #18-#20 sow bug patterns, and size #16-#18 worm patterns. Anglers fishing deeper water such as below Deer Creek dam or closer to the Olmstead Diversion may find swinging soft hackle patterns, or dead drifting balanced leeches and streamers pretty effective for hungry browns and bows. This stretch of the Lower Provo River receives a lot of angler use. Please be mindful of other anglers, share the resource and practice good stream etiquette. We are conducting creel surveys this year on the lower Provo. Your willingness to provide fishing trip information and voluntary participate in these surveys, conducted by DWR personnel, is greatly appreciated. This information gives our biologists essential data to help better manager and improve this fishery.
