The Fork has been clearing nicely in the warmer weather offering some nice midge and BWO hatches on occasion. This week with the consistently warm weather, the fish were taking midge and bwo emergers. Generally though it is still a matter of fishing deep with attractor patterns. The river edges have cleared well and access is very good.

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