The following is a report from Parker Stenersen(age 11) who fished four days this week with his Dad and friends.
“On the upper South Fork it was slow in the morning using a pink CFO Ant, but we used a streamer on the banks and in deep swirly water to catch fish in the morning.
In the mid day you will want to find a rifel(riffle) with a deep truff (trough). The flies that have been working are a pmd dun and a pink spinner. Just hang on a rifel and if its not good but go find another and just wait there until 7:30 pm and the start using a CFO or streamer until dark. ” Parker Stenersen
Parker’s experience is what we are seeing from the Dam down through the canyon. The water is still very cool for this time of year so we are not seeing mayfly hatches until 1 pm or so.
The lower river (below Heise) is picking up finally with good action with Chernobyls on top or a Bennett’s Rubber leg nymph with a San Juan worm dropper under water.
