The Clark Fork has been fishing very well from top to bottom. Some cloud cover should make the fish pretty happy. They’re still taking larger bugs on the surface, but are definitely interested in miniature mayflies when the time calls for it. For dries, use rusty spinners in the evening, elk hair and Goddard caddis in the evening, tricos, mayfly duns and cripples, BWOs, attractor patterns, chubby chernobyls all day. For nymphs, use Pat’s rubber legs, micro stones, prince nymphs, double beaded stones, San Juan worms, caddis pupae, Pheasant tails and batman nymphs. For streamers, use big black and olive patterns fished tight to the banks and in deeper holes.
HATCHES: Hecubas, caddis, hoppers, nocturnal stones, tricos, PMDs, BWOs
FLIES: Small purple haze, mahoganies, Morris Hoppers, chubby chernobyls, caddis, Prince nymphs, golden stones/nymphs, streamers.
Other Info: The Kingfisher is the largest dealer of Simms Fishing Products in the Rocky Mountains.
