The South Fork has dropped even more to 13,900 cfs at Irwin and 14,200 cfs at Heise. The fishing is beginning to pick up since this drop in flows. The best fishing has been with nymphs under an indicator, and with a bright streamer of some sort. Also, small dry flies such as BWO’s are out and with a little overcast you could have a great day fishing them. Lastly, on the lower south fork, I would be on the look out for Yellow Sallies and Green Drakes to start coming off.
Flies I would take with me:
Nymphs: Bennett’s Brown Rubber Leg size 6 & 8, San Juan Worm size 10, Red Copper John size 14, Super Flash size 14.
Streamers: Gallop’s Yellow Dungeon, Kreelix Copper/Gold, Gallop’s White Peanut Envy, Sparkle Minnow, Flash Minnow.
Dry Flies: John’s CFO Yellow Sallie size 14, Thorax Blue Wing Olive size 16, Green Drake Wulff size 10
