Each day we go past mid summer this river becomes more attractive.  Right now there are many walk-in wade locations and float fishing is a great way to really see what this river offers.  Streamer fishing especially early and late in the day is the best way to encounter the large trout here.  But with the great and growing terrestrial insect populations, slamming hoppers towards banks and other overhead cover out of direct sunlight is productive.  Use your South Fork bank fishing techniques if you float fish this river.
