Its’ game on down here on the lower Clark Fork. Fish are looking up, caddis and pmds are on the way, and golden stones are batting around as well. The river is in great condition and fishing well.
Nymphing has been solid in the mornings and actually throughout the day in fast, deep water. Big stonefly patterns with worm or prince nymph droppers will move fish consistently.
Dry fly action is pretty steady. Golden stones, caddis, and pmds are all popping and fish are looking up in earnest. Big dries with #16 pmd nymph or caddis droppers are working well all day. Caddis activity has been solid in the late evenings as soon as the sun of off the water.
Look for great conditions to continue throughout the week with increased dry fly opportunities. Expect stable weather, warm daytime temps in the high 80’s by midweek and light winds.
