South Fork Fishing Report – (9.19.23)
Flows are now 7,450 cfs. The South Fork is still in great fishing shape for the end of summer and beginning of fall. Water quality has been good with very little moss or weed growth. Flows have been up and down a bit; however, those changes haven’t been drastic. Mutant Stones are finishing up! Foam fishing has been productive with twitching golden stone imitations and hoppers during early mornings periods. As we near the end of the summer season, look for our Mahoganies and BWOs to be the main hatches and really kick into high gear during rainy and cooler periods. The reminder of the time can be plugged with Terrestrials – Hoppers, Beetles and Ants. Nymphing with rubberlegs and tungsten jig variants are going to be productive during the mid-day lulls. Streamers have been effective during the recent overcast days. As summer ends, look for fish to be in some different areas to get away from angling pressure and bug and fish activity to ease into mid-day and afternoons.
