The South Fork has fished pretty good when the temperatures have been at, or above freezing. We haven’t seen too many days like that since mid-December, but this week is supposed to have temps in the lower 30/s to mid-40’s during the day. Try the South Fork. Nymphs or streamers work best during the warmest part of the day – usually noon until 3:30 p.m.
Flies: Wet flies and streamers: North Fork Specials, PT’s, Hares ear, Copper Johns, Buggers (all colors), Slump busters (all colors), JJ Specials, and all your favorite streamers.
Dries: Too cold for dries. However, size 14 and smaller parachute Adams and Griffith’s gnats will bring some trout and whitefish to the surface even in these extremely cold conditions.
Flows: 87 cfs (Valley School)
