Lots of caddis now. Smaller stoneflies and some pale morning duns and green drakes also hatching.
Try fishing rubber legged stonefly nymphs trailed by a smaller beadhead along the banks in the softer water.
CFS: 868 (these flows are at Belfry, MT) – The Clarks Fork has less flow leaving the Wild and Scenic Canyon area. One can wade the river in places now downstream from the canyon. The lower Clarks Fork is muddy but shold clear in the next few days.
Flies for the lower Clark Fork: medium size rubber-legs in black, brown or purple are good if trailed by a black or Redhead North Fork Special, purple soft hackle jig flies, Prince nymph jig flies and Blooms soft hackle jig. Hoppers, ant and beetle patterns are working well. Caddis dries in the evenings.
