South Fork Sponsored by
Date 17-Sep-17
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : South Fork: Current weather is “just what the doctor ordered” for increasing fishing success on the South Fork. Back this up with decreasing flows out of Palisades Dam (currently just under 7700 cfs and sure to drop further as the water storage season begins), and fishing in the near future here looks great. BWOs in good numbers are coming out in the riffles with mahogany duns beginning to show in places. Be sure to have life cycle patterns for each in that fly box. When periods of good sunshine happen, go back to presenting your favorite hopper pattern back to the vegetated banks and be sure to trail that pattern with a small bead head nymph. We could not ask for better conditions for presenting streamers because of increased low light conditions brought on by unsettled weather looking to last into next week. So whether you fish from a boat or wade, the South Fork could now be offering some of the best fishing this season.
