Lower Clarks Fork

May 5, 2022 9:00 am

CFS: 284 at the WY State line

Water levels are on the rise with the longer days and warmer temps.  Look to fish bigger stonefly patterns.  The Clarks Fork has a decent Salmon Fly hatch, and the nymphs are starting to get active.

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 8 and smaller.

Streamers are also working well. Trout are responding to woolly buggers, conehead zonkers, peanut envy, muddlers, and other streamer flies 2-5 inches in length. Best colors seem to be brown, yellow/brown, black/olive, olive, black, white. Size 2-10.

Should you want an immediate update on flows, water quality, hatches, fly suggestions, we advise you call, not email, North Fork Anglers at 307-527-7274 for that. We also suggest and recommend that you do the same for the 2022 Guided Trip season to reserve dates and guides. We are already getting bookings for late spring and summer trips in 2022. If you have your dates picked out, we urge you to get a deposit made as soon as possible so you don’t miss the chance to float or walk/wade Cody/Bighorn area rivers and streams.
