It’ll be hot midweek but we are looking forward to a big cool down come Thursday!
BEST TECHNIQUES – If you are trying the Clark Fork, look for walking pace water with a depth of 3′-6′. Try soft insides and look for good structure. Fish are looking up for small mayflies in the slicks and heavier current lines.
OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK –
Dry dropper fishing is still getting it done these days. A mayfly or smaller stone dropper is the ticket under a smaller sized chubby.
We are still encouraging folks to get out early just to keep that habit rolling.
Hopper fishing has been pretty darn good on the entire river.
They are looking up for small mayflies (tricos these days) so be on the lookout for noses.
Still be careful in the braids between Clinton and Sha-ron as things have changed from last years high water. And now with low water, it won’t be easy.
When in doubt, scout it out.
7 DAY OUTLOOK –
Wednesday is looking hot, high of 90. There is a cold front moving in that evening, look for winds associated with the big change.
Thursday on looks cooler, with highs in the low 80’s.
Strong winds in the evenings this weekend, please be advised!
