    World Class 7000 trout per river mile below Flaming Gorge Dam tailwater. Get a guide, float the river, its 100% worth it.

    You are way below the trout zone. The dam down to the Colorado border has the highest populations. Three sections (A-B-C) with less fish as you go down stream. I'm sure there are fish past Jones Hole in Dinosaur NP, but that is lowest on the river I have caught trouties.
    Yeah, maybe catfish or suckers.

    If you get a chance, a side trip to Flaming Gorge is well worth the effort. You can float it, but there is good trail acces for almost ten miles below the dam.
