Current Flow: near Emma - 579cfs Although the flows are a little lower than last week, they were augmented midweek by more rain. However the flows are dropping again so given a few more days of warmer clear weather and the Fork will be perfect again. At these flows the floating from Basalt will be great and the wading generally excellent. Recommended Flies: The best results on the Fork now are from nymphing. Use small baetis and pmd nymphs after a large stonefly pattern. Alternatively sink caddis pupae patterns. Try small baetis such as the FPA Sparkle Baetis, the FPA Thorax Emerger, and black pheasant tails have also worked well. For emergers, the rs2 in black or gray. Also the sparkle wing rs2. For small flies, copper johns, pc phlash, mercury rs2's, pheasant tails, bubble back bwos. Also try PMD nymphs, rusty spinners and yellow sallies. For the stone fly nymphs good patterns continue to include the BB FB Epoxy 20 Incher, the BTB Hot Spot 20 Incher and the CTB RL Epoxy 20 Incher. In the afternoon, black and purple streamers such as black buggers have also produced results. For the drakes in the evening the H & L Variant is a must as it will remain visible into dark. Otherwise try the Colorado Drake, the adult drake, and the hairwing dun.

Current Flow: near Emma - 613cfs The overnight rain on Friday and Saturday morning pushed the Fork up by over 100cfs at Basalt. It put the fish down deep and when the Pan colored up from Seven Castles in the afternoon the Fork suffered the consequences. But it settled down nicely again by Sunday evening so with a few dry days the Fork should settle lower again. Recommended Flies: The best results on the Fork now are from nymphing.
