South Fork

June 15, 2019 9:00 am

The South Fork of the Shoshone is a smaller version of the North Fork of the Shoshone.  Browns, rainbows and Yellowstone cutthroat.

Warmer temperatures and afternoon thunder storms has increased snowmelt and runoff on the South Fork.  Runoff is occurring now that ambient temps are in the high 70’s. Some fishing can be had early in the day. Afternoon thunder storms has been occurring and are forecast to continue into next week. The South Fork will remain high, swift and off-color through June, early July.

Fish hopper/dropper rigs along the edges early morning before the snowmelt begins midday. Trout are eating the droppers better than the dries, but golden stones are active up in the Valley.

Flies: Large Prince, bloody Mary, hare’s ears and North Fork specials have been go-to droppers. Ho Candy and Chubby Chuck’s for dry flies.


CFS: 988 cfs in the upper Valley.
