Small critters like this Uinta ground squirrel can be seen along
the Greys River.
One of the unique aspects
of the Greys is you can
follow the river from its
headwaters to its confluence
in your vehicle.
named Fred Pitchard was closing up shop
when I arrived, but generously let me pick
out a few flies and gave me some pointers.
After the long drive in the dark, I set up
camp in what appeared to be a large clearing
near the river's origin. I pitched my tent and
went to bed dreaming of cutthroat rising
for my fly. I woke up in the morning to a
surround-sound symphony of birds singing
loudly outside my tent. As I opened the tent
flap, what I could only guess at the night
before became visible in the golden-morning
light. I was in the middle of a huge alpine
meadow filled with wildflowers as far as the
eye could see, and only 100 yards away from
the start of the river. The Greys, which has an
average flow of 654 cubic feet per second, was
now only a trickle of water seeping from the
ground. No fish that I could see resided in
this small flow of water, but within the first
4 miles from the origin several small streams
and brooks converge into the river creating
an ecosystem that held fish.
I had a bite to eat and then eagerly proceeded
to fish the upper Greys for the rest
The start of the Greys River is small and oftentimes shallow.
