The fishing on the South Fork continues to improve and get better. The flows are still high but stable coming out of the damn near Irwin at 14,000 cfs. The fishing has still been best with nymphs, and the stone fly nymphs are beginning to move even more on the South Fork causing the fish to move. Also, Streamer Fishing continues to get better with a bright steamer. Lastly, I would start to look for dry flies such as Yellow Sallies, Green Drakes, and Blue Wing Olives on the lower section of the South Fork.
Flies I would take with me:
Nymphs: Bennett’s Brown Rubber Leg size 6 & 8, San Juan Worm size 10, Red Copper John size 14, Super Flash size 14.
Streamers: Gallop’s Yellow Dungeon, Kreelix Copper/Gold, Gallop’s White Peanut Envy, Sparkle Minnow, Flash Minnow.
Dry Flies: John’s CFO Yellow Sallie size 14, Thorax Blue Wing Olive size 16, Green Drake Wulff size 10
