We are getting a lot of calls about the South fork in the anticipation of an early stone fly emergence. As of yesterday there was no sign of a nymph crawl out. We floated from Byington down and know of a couple of boats that were below us and no one saw any of the big bugs. We did have a good hatch of size 10 green drakes from late morning to early afternoon and the small fish were up feeding on them in the riffles.
Our best success still came underneath with size 4 rubber legs followed with a smaller nymph. Streamers have also been good. The same goes for the upper sections as far as patterns and techniques go.. We are getting a lot questions also about the obstacles in the river below Byington. There is a pretty good suck hole on the north Twin Bridges and a lot of debris is piled up on Lorenzo bridge. Passage under the bridge is down the middle or through the right channel. The ramp at Lorenzo will fit two boats but not three. You can pull over on either side of the river directly blow the bridge to see if the ramp is clear before proceeding to the take out.
