The South Fork is starting to get fish looking up on dry flies. Since the flows have really settled down at Heise, flowing 13,900cfs, the Green Drakes and Yellow Sallies are starting to fish well in the afternoon from Byington down. Nymph fishing has been excellent throughout the whole river with bugs starting to move around more. The streamer fishing has been excellent on the Upper South Fork from the Damn down to Spring Creek. Lastly, I would give the South Fork a few more days in this warm weather before the big bugs to start popping on the lower 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, Green Drake Wulff size 10, Kyle’s Yellow Sallie size 12, Olive Hare’s Ear Parachute size 12, Super Chernobyl Golden size 10 (A.K.A Chubby)
