The summer is starting to drag on the Clark fork lately. Mid day has been a little slow in the heat but its still a feasible option. Attractor dries and dry/dropper rigs are working really well, along with PMDs, caddis, and yellow sallies when the occasion calls. For dries, use elk hair and Goddard caddis’ in the evening, 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.
