The lower Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River is fishable. Fishing is slow to fair. Nymphing is going to be your best bet. Some dry fly action on the warmer days with small BWO’s and Midges hatching. There are no frozen areas now. Some muddy water is coming into the river just above Eidelweiss and at Pat O’Hara and Paint Creeks near the Beartooth Ranch area.
Nymphs: bead head Prince, pheasant tails, gold-ribbed hare’s ears, Pat’s stones, Spanish bullets in black, pearl or purple and North Fork Specials size 10 and smaller.
Streamers, or going deep with weighted nymphs recommended.
