Fish the Game and Fish access areas in Sunlight Basin above the canyon sections. The creek is bank full, swift and somewhat off color due to snowmelt. The canyon is still too heavy to wade easily or safely. Again, access above the Game and Fish cabins above the canyon area is recommended.
Dry/droppers rigs or beadhead nymphs size 10 and smaller work well. Dries that are reliable are royal Wulffs, royal trudes, elk hair caddis, smaller stimulators and parachute Adams size 10 and smaller.
Pack bear spray and insect repellent. Road access is closed past Little Sunlight Creek on the upper part of the creek due to bear activity until mid-July.
