Reports for Shoshone River Drainages
The flows are high on the lower Shoshone and they’re only going to get higher. We haven’t seen many fish coming to the surface for bugs but the nymphing and streamer action has been decent. Fish the edges of the river the best luck. 1 foot or less of visibility CFS: 7921 Flies: Firebead sowbug, Purple and Peacock Prince, Black North Fork Specials, San Juan Worms, Midge pupa, Pheasant Tails, Bloody Mary’s, Jigged Soft Hackles, Rubber legged streamers and leech patterns. Water is off color.
Closed From Gibbs Bridge to Newton Creek Campground. The recent warm weather has the snow melting and the feeder streams dumping muddy water into the North Fork. It is going to be a while before the North Fork is fishing again unless we get some cold weather that lasts a few days. When the water clears the flies noted below will work. Looking forward to a great year on the NF with the amount of snowfall we received this winter up high. Go ahead give us a call and get lined up for a trip of a lifetime this summer!!!... View Article
