Current Flow: near Emma - 745cfs The Fork dropped significantly this week. The floating is still good for most of its length and will be for a little while longer. But at this rate it won't be longer before we see the armarda floating from Carbondale. So take the opportunities now presented to float as much of it as you can. The drakes are coming off in the evening higher now so there are plenty of good opportunities to get out and enjoy the experience. Recommended Flies: The best results on the Fork now are from nymphing. Use either attractor patterns down deep. Alternatively stoneflies with attractor patterns or baetis. 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. 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. Also try drake nymphs such as the FPA Nymph, or the poxyback. For variety try the muskrat as well. 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. During the day the drake nymphs wil be about so try them as well as caddis pupae.

The Roaring Fork River has been fishing well and flows are falling slowly, barring any 'Gullywashers'. The Green Drakes are steadily moving upstream with PMD's, Caddis and Yellow Sallies also hatching during the day. The best Green Drake action can be found in the evening, late in the evening. Stay until you can't see your flies, then keep fishing. Best patterns to use will have white wings and maybe even a white tail, the more white the better to see, as the light fades. Don't forget to grab some Drake Cripples for your box, they work. Call us for current conditions or stop by to find out more before floating or wading. Flies: Dries: H & L Variant, Rio Grande Trude, Foam Drake, Hair Wing Drake, Drake Cripple, Foam Caddis, Pink Cahill, Rubber Leg Crystal Stimulator, Para Wulff PMD, Golden Fluttering Stone, Rusty Spinner Nymphs: Poxy Back Drake, Anatomical Drake, Drake Crawler, Kyle's Sally, Iron Sally, Bat Wing PMD, Barr's Flashback Emerger, Lively's Beady B, G's Drowned Spinner, LeBug, Pat's Rubber legs Streamers: Sunrise Sculpzilla, Goldie, Chain Reaction, Belly Dancer
