Professional Fly Fishing Guides

For nearly three decades, Trout Creek’s professional fly fishing guides have been leading anglers to successfully fish and experience the world-class fishery the Green River and Flaming Gorge Reservoir have to offer. Owner, Johnny Spillane, has integrated his Olympic award-winning work ethic and precision into Trout Creek in an effort to match the greatness of the Green River.

Wade Isaman

Wade first fell in love with fishing back in 1997 on the Green River. On his first day, he became “hooked” after landing two buttery browns. Since then, he has traveled to the waters in Washington and Montana, but kept returning to the Green. He is here to stay as one of our guides!

Wade is the guide for you if you are looking for someone that is “fun”, informative, and patient. He wants you to become “hooked” on these beautiful, big browns as he did several years ago.

As an avid fly-tier, he’ll take care of the flies of choice for you on your trip. Being slightly superstitious, he would prefer you leave the bananas and white lighters

Nick Jackson
Nick has been a licensed fly fishing guide since 2007. He started guiding on the Green River in 2011, and has several years experience in Bristol Bay Alaska and Patagonia Chile. Nick has been featured in National Geographic (2010) and on Trout TV Show (2015).

Nick is often described as courteous, professional, and patient, as well as knowledgeable of both the river water and appropriate flies. He has a kind, receptive personality and can adapt to any skill level from beginner to experienced, and any desired technique of fishing.

John Sparger
John is as local as they come. Having grown up in nearby Vernal, Utah, he was exposed to the Green River at a young age. His passion for fishing was developed upon the numerous lakes and streams around the area, beginning at a very young age.

When he discovered fly fishing, working for Trout Creek, at the age of 18, it was a perfect fit. John has been guiding the Green River since 2006, in that time he has learned to become a patient instructor in the techniques and nuances of fishing the Green, with specific emphasis on his favorite techniques of dry fly and streamer fishing.

Brandon Feller
Brandon has been fly fishing the Green River since he was a boy, and it quickly became his favorite river. He began his guiding career on the Green in 2006, and has been guiding here full time since then. Brandon enjoys teaching anglers and casters of all skill levels and is a Fly Fishers International (FFI) certified casting instructor.

Brandon believes that it’s not just about guiding people into fish, but empowering individuals to become better anglers.

Green River Fishing Report

May 21, 2024

Flows: Going up to 6600cfs by 6/26/24

Temps: 44-48 F

Fishing remains good on all sections of the river. The baetis (bwo) hatch is still going strong on some parts of the river, and we are still seeing some good midge hatches mid morning. With the weather finally warming up we are starting to see some terrestrial insects such as cicadas, flying ants, seed bugs, and beetles. Both dry flies and nymphing have been productive. Streamer fishing can be decent when conditions are right.

Go-to flies:

BWO nymphs, emergers, cripples, duns, and spinners. (sz. 18-20) Red, wine, black, and brown midge pupa. (14-18) Brown and red worm patterns. Peach, pink, and yellow egg patterns. Cicadas black with yellow highlights. (12-14) Flying ants black and brown. ( 12-14) Seed bugs brown (12-14) Beetles black (10-12)
