We apologize for not updating our fishing report pages since mid-July. Without making a lot of excuses, it is because North Fork Anglers has had one of the busiest guided trip and in-the-fly-shop tourist season EVER! So, thank you to the guided trip guests and those that came into the shop to purchase flies, leaders, tippets, new fly rods, fly reels, fly lines, clothing and gear despite the lack of information on the area fishing conditions.

Sunlight Creek

Fishing is slow above the Sunlight Ranger Station. Water quality is fair, but improving, after the recent rains. We expect Sunlight Creek to clear and fish well by mid-week. Hoppers, ants, beetles and attractor dry flies are best for fishing the canyon. Rocks are slick from sediment deposited after 3 weeks of rain activity. A hopper/nymph dropper rig is perfect for the pocket water fishing found in Sunlight creek. We apologize for not updating our fishing report pages since mid-July.

Flows are low  but water quality has vastly improved this week. Fishing has been fair to good. Caddis, pale evening duns, ants, beetles, hoppers. Attractor patterns such as royal Wulffs or royal Trudes work well as do smaller hopper patterns like Ho Candy, Horrors and club sandwiches. Fish hopper/dropper rigs or nymphs size 10 and smaller, particularly black bodied North Fork Specials. Pack bear spray. Crandall is a highly trafficked grizzly bear area.
