South Fork 7-19-14

No big change since our 7/14 report.  Flows are stable (13200 cfs at dam, 13700 at Heise) with water temps in the mid 50s coming out of the dam.  The upper river offers the best fishing.  A few golden stones remain.Try PMD and pink albert life cycle patterns in the riffles. Timing is nymphs early, then emergers as the day progresses, on to duns if you see fish taking on the surface.  Afternoon caddis activity can bring fish up. Terrestrial patterns will be important soon. Try your favorite streamer pattern early in the morning, and around sunset. And remember that for all your dry patterns, presentation and ability to see them on the surface trumps choice.
