Grizzly Hackle, out of Missoula, scores the Clark Fork River at 3/5 for fishing as of November 21st.  Here is their latest report:

This week was pretty mild and it looks like it will be above freezing for a bit.  The Clarkfork, especially around town, is fishing pretty good.  Nymphing is the main thing going right now in the afternoons.  Winter nymphing is about finding inside bends, slow drop offs and then working them methodically until you find fish.  Fish will normally stack up in the same spots.  Take your time and you’ll be rewarded.  Flies to have this time of year or Princes, dark colored Perdigons, San Juans, Eggs, Rubberlegs and Double Bead stones.  Streamers are another option, but you’ll need to slow your retrieves down to a crawl or even just a swing.  Sculpin type patters will be the ticket.  Olive/Golds, White/Gold and Black are great options in the colder water.
