South Fork Fishing Report – (4.30.21)
Idaho Fish and Game are operating Rainbow Trout Suppression in the following reaches from April 19th – May 27th:
Flows have increased to 4280 cfs. Fishing has picked up due the warmer weather and longer days. Dam, Husky’s, Irwin, Spring Creek Bridge, Conant, Wolf (Cottonwood doesn’t open until May 1st) and the Lower River boat ramps have been plowed and are boat accessible. Just remember, flows are cold; so many of your spots you found in the summer might now be the best places to target fish in the winter. Fish like slower water types this time of year. Slow recirculating eddies, seems and tailouts are the name of the game. Nymphing with Rubberlegs, small pheasant tails and BWO imitations will continue to be productive during the winter season. Don’t be surprised to see some fish eating midges on the surface as well. Streamer fishing can remain consistent, just keep those flies deep and slow.
