Sallies and PMDs on upper river riffles seems to be the best place for action. Stimulators are catching fish close to banks. Use same strategy with chernobyl types. some hoppers are appearing on the lower river, so some great fishing with large dries is not far away.
Please be careful when boating on the river. We lost a very experienced South Fork fly-fisher Saturday when a boat tipped at the Lorenzo Bridge. He was a fabulous fly tier, engaging personality, and a generous contributor to our fly fishing culture. He will be sorely missed.
Dave Raisch reports that he lost a Scott S-4, 486 rod with Lamson Velocity reel in the South Fork in the Irwin area. If you find these Dave can be reached at 208-406-4593.
