Canyon Section of the Clarks Fork

October 15, 2020 1:00 am

Water quality is good and the flows are now less dangerous below Reef Creek to the mouth of the lower Box Canyon. Access at Reef Creek and Deadman Creek areas, or off Antelope Butte. Caution is STILL advised in some places if trying to cross in the swifter areas. Buddy up.

Access into the canyon of the Clarks Fork requires a good heart, stout body, excellent wading skills, and bear spray. Expect a mix of Yellowstone cutthroat, rainbows, cutbows and brook trout. Pack water or a good filter to stay hydrated in the canyon and power bars, or some form of energy food, for the hike out.

Dries – royal trudes, royal Wullfs, stimulators, humpies, elk hair caddis, parachute Adams and Ho Candies (hoppers) for dries.

Nymphs would be Pat’s rubber legs, black or tan North Fork Specials, Halfbacks, Prince nymphs, bloody Mary’s, and Bloom’s optic nerve. Sizes 8-16.
