We will be open Labor Day, Monday, September 7th, 9AM to afternoon hours to help you enjoy the South Fork and other great area waters
It had to come sometime this summer but after some of the best riffle fishing we have had in years we have to report that the Pale Morning Dun hatches have really slowed down. Now its time to start using everything else that you can pull out the fly box.
Happiness is a cutty to release!
Use chernobyl ants and streamers early in the in the mornings on the flats. If you don’t find feeding fish later in the day try a hopper against the back with a small nymph dropper. A rubber leg/HEAVY TUNGSTEN BEADHEAD San Juan worm combo would be my next idea. Flow out of Palisades has been stable at 8600 cfs for several days, but expect it to drop further with most of the irrigation season behind us. This means great days are ahead for walk-in fishing during the fall season.

Finally consider stopping and fishing some side channels and places that can’t be reached by boat. You might find fish that haven’t been bothered all summer.
