Profile: Green River Guide Emmett Heath

April 23, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

The “Dean of the Green” doesn’t care for his nickname, but years of hard work put him in a class by himself.
“Emmett Heath caught his first trout on the Green River below Flaming Gorge Reservoir before the dam was even completed. Barely a teenager, Heath was sitting on a rock watching a wet fly twirl in the current when a rainbow trout startled him out of a mesmerized trance.” Brett Prettyman in the Salt Lake Tribune.
