The Clark Fork River is still giving up some pretty good fish in the mornings and evenings. Between the afternoon thunder storms and the heat, you can still find some pretty good fishing with a dry dopper rig or a streamer it’s just not gonna be the steady action you can expect in the mornings and evenings. For dries, use elk hair and Goddard caddis’ in the evening, tricos, PMDs and PEDs, attractor patterns, golden rogues, chubby chernobyls for the morning and afternoon. 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.
