The Salmon flies are still going strong and moving up the river. From about Spring Creek (the bridge in Swan Valley) down to Cottonwood/Fulmer, the Salmon fly fishing has been the best. Futhermore, the fishing has been really good in the riffles with PMDs and Yellow Sallies throughout the whole river from noon on. There are a few Golden-stones hatching out on the lower section, and fishing one of those with a nymph as a dry dropper has worked. Lastly, the South Fork is still flowing around 14,000 cfs, and the river is in great condition even though it is a little high.
