Clark Fork River Below Missoula

Daily River Report

June 25, 2015

The heat and sun have slowed down the fishing slightly (mostly in the afternoon) The Clark Fork below town has been good and at times  it's dry fly paradise down here, like most of the rest of our waters.  PMD's, Golden's, Sallies and tons of Caddis are all on the fishes menu. Still of few green drakes stumbling around out there.  A Golden Chubby, Rasta, Rogue Golden or Crystal Stimi with a PT, Hare's Ear, Copper John, Reckoner or Tungsten Sally dropper has been doing well.  Once the PMD's come off switch to a Cripple or Comparadun.  Caddis are coming off in huge numbers just before dark.  An X-Caddis or Elk Hair will do the job if you're out late. Fish continue to rise well after dark.  You could even fish a Hopper if you wanted too.

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!
