Since our last South Fork fishing report (9-6-16) flow out of Palisades Dam has been dropped about 2000 cfs. It now stands at about 7300 cfs which is about normal for this time of year. Allow a day or two and fish will adjust to this significant flow drop and respond to mutant stoneflies with full interest, will do the same to hopper patterns, and provide good riffle fishing. There has been a repeat of the 2012 whitefish kill on the river. Whether the cause is the same as the recent one on the Yellowstone River is yet to be determined.
