South Fork 7-07-14

First off, the South Fork is fishing great all throughout the river. The salmon flies are now all the way up to the Palisades Dam, but they are still in the canyon.  When fishing the big bugs, I would stop on a gravel bar and fish the structures like log jams, big boulders, and troughs. Along with the big bugs are PMDs, Yellow Sallies, and a big Caddis towards night.  If there is an overcast day, I would not be afraid to try a streamer. Therefore the selection of flies I would have, goes as such:

Trout Flies:

Super Chernobyl Golden Yellow (size 8 & 10)

CFO Pink Ant (size 8)

Improved Sofa Pillow (size 4)

Rollin Stone (size 4)

Small Dries:

Pink Comparadun (size 16 & 18)

Pink Albert CDC Biot Emerger (size 16 & 18)

Kyle’s Yellow Sally (size 12 & 14)

Goddard Caddis (size 14)

Nymphs:

Bennet’s Seal Rubber Legs (size 6 & 8)

Beadhead Crystal Pheasant Tail (size 14 & 16)

Red Copper John (size 14 & 16)

Streamers:

Gallop’s Olive or White Sex Dungen (size 2)

Coffey’s Sparkle Minnow Sculpin (size 6)

Stenersen’s Lite Brite Minnow Rainbow (size 4)
