Tim’s advice given in the 11-15-2011 report for the South Fork still holds good. Perhaps the most comfortable fishing now is pitching streamers because constant casting helps keep you warm. Tim is right: wading to sweet spots is less demanding in cold weather than all the messin’ around with getting that boat in and out of the water, being out on the river with wind, and the risk of a storm coming in and having to get off the river, collecting everything, and getting it back on the road to home. So consider wading to those great locations while being dressed accordingly. It’s also a good idea to check with the USFS or BLM to learn road conditions on the lesser traveled roads along the river.
