South Fork 12/1

Flows have remained steady at 3,500 cfs. This is the lowest we should see the flows for the majority of the winter. Right now they seem to be matching outflow with the inflow of the reservoir. We can’t see any reason¬† for that to change any time soon.

Fishing has continued to hold steady and people are catching fish on dry flies. Midges have been hatching in decent numbers on the warmer days. I like to tie on a parachute Adams as an indicator dry fly and tie the midge behind it. Often times you will find the fish also eating your larger indicator fly. Nymphing is also working very well. Rubberlegs in a size 6 or 8. Tie a dropper about 24 inches below your rubberleg. Any bead head should do I prefer zebra midges and Blue wing olive nymphs this time of year. With the flows at this level there is plenty of wading access on the river as well. You can still float the river right now but as we continue to get more snow through the winter; the boat ramps will become snowed in and unusable.
