Daily River Report

May 04, 2015

It's gone up a lot in the last few days, but we've still been fishing it.  The Skwala's, Drakes and March Browns are still getting fish on top, but the nymphin with big stonefly nymphs has been the best method for numbers of fish.  Streamer fishing is there, but has been tough in the bright sun.  Flies to have right now?  Rubberlegs, 20 Inchers, Princes, Double Bead Stones, Peacock Stones, Hare's Ear Stones, Rogues Stones, Black Chubby's, Comparaduns, Carnage Drakes and Extended Body Drakes/March Browns.

Remember we have 1/2 off Fridays!!!  Your first 12 nymphs and dries are half-off!

Hatch Reels are what you need for the Big Clark Fork Rainbows.  These fish are hot and you need a premium drag!
