Top water fishing here is improving considerably. Bring PMD and sally life cycle patterns for trying the riffles. Cycle from nymphs to emergers and cripples to duns as the day progresses. Fish will switch their interest through this cycle as the day progresses, so be ready to change your patterns. This kind of fishing should last for weeks to come as long as water levels, now close to ideal, stay where they are now. If they do, you will experience the fishing for which South Fork is famed. Overall nymph fishing is very good. Some big bugs remain in the canyon and periodically produce good fishing, and evening caddis activity brings responses from fish all along the river. The time to be on this best of rivers is just beginning.
