Fishing on South Fork Picks Up!

We have climbed the mountain of high and off-color water and things are really looking up.  The river is steadily dropping and at 9000 cfs, offers anglers some of the best fishing in the area.  Although hatches of mayflies, the typical staple this time of year, have been sparse, fish are munching on a variety of offerings.  Stoneflies still are fooling trout as well as smaller nymphs from sallies to pheasant tails.  Those willing to throw streamers are grabbing fish as well.  Guides are coming home with more smiles than in previous weeks and if things shape up the way they are going, we ought to be seeing clear water and big trout in abundance soon.  This nice brownie fell prey to one of Chris Jensen’s secrets!  Nice fish.,  stay tuned
