Conditions on the Clark Fork are pretty good but flows super low with fall arriving. Between the recent rain coupled with clouds, shorter days, and cooler temps look for good surface fishing on this river throughout September and October. Mahoganies and hoppers will be the call for most of the fishing here.
BEST TECHNIQUES – Big attractors and long droppers in the morning if you don’t find sippers on the mayflies.
OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK – Afternoon fishing should be really good with the cooler temps and rain forecast for the next few days. Watch for subtle risers in the eddy lines and backwaters along the banks.
7 DAY OUTLOOK – This will soon be the river everyone will be fishing….the fall on the Clark Fork is the bomb. Mayflies and hoppers on the menu. Afternoon fishing will be the call…..mornings will likely be slower with the cooler air temps we’re having….but you can still get it done with a nymph rig or dropper below a big attractor pattern.
