Hello,

I recommend you go higher up on Greenbriar at theis time of year Wynnsman. I wouldn't spend anytime fishing below the Porters Creek junction due to warmer water temps and swimmers, tubers, etc. As fas as flies, you don't need anything fancy, Stimmies, Parachute adams (yellow or gray), caddis flies, etc. The trout aren't that selective on Greenbriar IMHO, especially at this time of year. Tip: if you want to get into some good spec water, hike up the Rameys Cascade trailhead until the trail narrows, the main stream bends to the right, and Ramseys Creek joins the Greenbriar at this point . Cross the creek at this point and fish upstream on the Greenbriar and I think you'll have an enjoyable experience.

Enjoy, Neal

Although I haven't fished Greenbriar lately, I've been having luck on small (18's) caddis flies elsewhere in the park. Tan and yellow have seemed to do the best.

I was just up there this past Thursday. Fished about .25 mile below where the road ends at the Ramsey Cascade Trail. Before the Yellow Sallies started, I had a lot of success using a 14 yellow caddis with a hard bodied ant as a dropper. They were hitting both flies evenly but the larger rainbows went for the ant. Switched to a Yellow Sallie size 18 when they started to come off. Overall a very successful day.

Good Luck. One of my favorite streams for scenery.

Agree would fish well above the ranger station this time of year. Would park at Ramsey Cascade Trail (basically always veer left, away from Porter's Creek). Fish above the first bridge (at least). The trail veers away from the creek, but it's pretty open forest and easy to hike along the streamside. I would use basically any dry (Elk Hair Caddis, etc) and drop a bead-head nymph (prince, pheasant tail) or Greenie Weenie.
