The South Fork has been impacted just about the least by all our rains. Fishing has been great. Flow out of Palisades at just below 8000 cfs ( 9700 cfs @ Heise) means a very accessible river whether you float or walk-in/wade. Tribs are putting in some discolored water which is overwhelmed by the clear flow out of Palisades Dam. Afternoons give downstream waters a chance to warm making PMs best fishing time. Streamers (See our 5-20-10 South Fork fishing report for specific patterns), San Juan worms, rubberlegs and your favorite nymph patterns, with or without beads, are also great choices. With warming waters look for action in riffles when BWOs and caddis emerge.
A reminder: If you decide to launch at Twin Bridges be prepared to push your boat to the North channel.
