South Fork 8-24-12

 

The flow is still stable at 10,900 cfs.  If you are willing to be a member of the Dawn Patrol there is some good fishing from daylight until 9 or 10 am with chernobyls and hoppers.  Monday night’s drop in the water made some of the riffles appear which has improved the mayfly hatches and fishing. Overall we have been experiencing better fishing the past week in addition to more consistent reports from anglers who are coming into the shop.

With each drop in the flow we should see more of the wingless golden stones emerge so the chernobyl patterns should continue to fish well.  Finally consider fishing a small terrestrial (ant or beetle) about two feet behind a bigger hopper or chernobyl. Try this two fly  technique latter in the day especially if fish  look at the fly and then turn away.
