Flow out of Palisades Dam will remain fairly steady at around 12000-13000 cfs for the near future. Fishing in the upper Swan Valley section of the river has been fairly good for those presenting rubber leg patterns, beadhead nymphs, and streamers on sink tip lines. Side channels produce the best action. Try those around Fall Creek Campground. Below where run-off from tribs accumulates the river is colder and fishing slows. With warming weather look for runoff to continue here for a while. We’ll post more info on fishing the South Fork before Memorial Day weekend.
