South Fork 6-12-15

First off, the South Fork has been raised over 6000 Cfs at Irwin and same at Heise in the last four days. Thus, meaning that the gravel bars that were sitting out, will now be a riffle in most spots. The fish should now be sitting in more traditional riffles and in the side channels better then before. I would also not be afraid to fish the troughs and mid river riffles too. Additionally, I would also fish the banks with streamers as much as I could. Lastly, the dry flies have not appeared yet, and I would still wait another week or so to really start looking for big bugs on the lower South Fork. The flies that I would take with me on a trip to the South Fork would be a Bennet’s Seal Brown Rubber Leg size 6 and 8, Pearl Lightning Bug size 14, Psycho Prince Yellow size 14 for nymphs. Streamers would be Krafts Kreelex Minnow copper/gold size 6, Sculpin Sparkle Minnow size 4, and a Gallops Yellow Dungeon size 2. Just to be on the safe side I would take some Pmds such as CFO Morning Dun Spinner size 18, Harrop’s Eye CDC Para Dun Spinner size 18.
