The South Fork of the Shoshone is a smaller version of the North Fork of the Shoshone. The South Fork is high and off color right now, which is unusual for this river, this late in the season. We expect this is due to a slide or other natural causes. But we are expecting to see the upper end of it clear up in the next couple of weeks. However, if you find yourself fishing the South Fork in the coming days, fish the slow water on the edges with big bugs on the bottom.
Flies: Tan North Fork Specials, Copper Johns, Pheasant Tails, Hares ears, Prince Nymphs, Halfbacks, Rubber leg Nymphs, Stimulators, Para Adams, Midge Pupa and Dries, 20 inchers, and Soft hackles.
