South Fork

July 10, 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.

Fishing conditions are okay due to high, swift water. There is still a huge amount of snow left to melt and come down in the South Fork drainage.

CFS: 1490 in the S. Fork Valley – still fishable but not wadeable. 

If you are going to fish the South Fork in the Valley or US Forest area, be careful wading. Our advice is to fish two nymph rigs deep under an indicator, or try hopper/dropper rigs along the edges and accessible side channels.

Flies: Large Prince, bloody Mary, hare’s ears and North Fork specials (black best!) have been go-to droppers or two-fly nymph rigs. Ho Candy and Chubby Chuck’s for dry flies.
