To be honest… it will be a while until the system is fishing again. It’s been a crazy spring and we still have a lot of water coming down the Clark Fork.
The upper, upper (near Garrison) may start to clear soon and become fishable.
There was a fatal in Clinton to Turah this past week due to a logjam. We send our condolences to the family, we are so sorry for your loss.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
BEST TECHNIQUES – Nymphing way up at Warm Springs is a possibility and potentially fishing a small mayfly dry above the spillway along the freeway.
OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK – If you do make the trek to the upper river, remember to fish small nymphs as if you were fishing a tailwater (which is essentially what you are doing). Lighter tippets in spite of the water clarity.
And be careful!!!!!!
7 DAY OUTLOOK – With the recent rains and all the feeders to the Clark Fork cycling dirty again, it’ll be a while for the C.F., have patience… summer is upon us!
