Fishing is getting pretty good on the South Fork. We have been hearing many good reports of lots of fish being caught on the gravel bars and the tailouts below the riffles. There is not much action on the bank right now but I would defiantly be fishing them between gravel bars. The streamer action is picking up every day. I have heard a mixed report on which streamer patterns are fishing the best. Be sure to bring a good selection with different colors and sizes. Fishing is still great with nymphs. big stonefly nymphs, yellow sally nymphs and an assortment of bead head flies have been working. Don’t overlook the san jaun worm, there have been many fish hooked on that fly.
We have been getting a lot of questions regarding the Salmon Fly hatch. As of right now we haven’t seen anything. I don’t expect to see any salmon flies until the last week of June. We all have our predictions but the truth is when they hatch we will let you all know by updating the fishing report.
Flows have stayed steady since the last increase over a week ago. Flows are 10,100 cfs. This is a great flow for fishing. This is also a great time to get out and do some fishing before all the crowds get here. The Canyon is really pretty right now and there is so secluded overnights to be had in the canyon for the next few weeks.
