It’s about ready to turn on the big stonefly hatch on. A few stoneflies are flying on the river below Lorenzo, and any day the fish will begin to notice. Warm weather coming up means their emergence will soon march up the river providing exciting dry fly fishing and crowds. Right now there are not many folks fly-fishing here, even though flow out Palisades Dam ( reservoir is about 95% of capacity and bulk of run-off is over) is about normal for the time of year. This makes the South Fork a great alternative to fishing the crowded lower Henry’s Fork. A few early season sallies are showing up. For now streamers, a variety of nymphs with and without beads, rubber legs, and big stonefly nymph patterns provide best action especially around riffles and side channels.
