The fishing in the Cody/Yellowstone area was not affected by the Yellowstone floods – come out and enjoy the excellent fly fishing!

Canyon Section of the Clarks Fork

September 4, 2022 9:00 am

The floods of June 12 and 13 caused serious damage to the canyon section of the Clarks Fork. We have not been getting positive fishing reports from those that have tried fishing this section. Below the canyon the road was wiped out from the flooding. Walk-in access is the only way to get into the lower canyon. Again, fishing is slow on the entire Clarks Fork below the Greasy Lake trail head now.

Labor Day weekend report – Water quality good again. Lots of silt, mud and debris in the canyon. Fish somewhere else is our recommendation.

Should you want an immediate update on flows, water quality, hatches, fly suggestions, we advise you to 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.
