The river is in excellent condition now. The browns are chasing streamers aggressively. The only floating is from Carbondale down.

Recommended Flies: The best results on the Fork now are from nymphing. Use either stoneflies or attractor patterns down deep, with small nymphs or emergers as the second fly. In the clear water and bright days the fish are near structure or down deep.

Now the big browns are chasing streamers as well so take along your streamer gear for a change.

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.

Try streamers now as well.

The rain over the past week has pushed up the Fork a little. It was colored up on Friday a little as the rain came down but it is clear now and perfect. The browns are chasing streamers aggressively offering some excellent days out. The crowds have gone so the river is seeing very little traffic now except on a nice day on the weekend. So there is a good opportunity to get out onto the river now for that last float of the season before the weather finally changes.
