LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows are around 270 cfs and fishing has been great recently all the way down to Willwood! The water is really clear with the exception of a few of the smaller creeks coming off the peaks which can dump in a little color on the warmer days as the lower elevation snow melts. Blue winged olives and midges are popping and have the trout looking up. Nymphing a sow bug, midge larva or blue wing nymph has also been effective. Streamers, especially when floating, are always a good option.
BIG HORN / WIND – Flows are around 715 cfs and fishing has been fantastic even with the high volume of boat traffic! You can head hunt for risers on blue winged olives and midges but a sow bug, blue wing nymph, midge larva, worm, or egg under a bobber will produce the most fish. Streamers have also been picking up some nice fish lately.
NORTH FORK – Closed to fishing downstream of Newton Creek until July 1st! Flows have been spiking with the recent warm weather and were off color well into the forest on March 31st. Hopefully the clarity will improve in the next few days with the cooler weather that is forecasted. Skwalas, March Browns, blue winged olives, stonefly nymphs, attractor nymphs, eggs and streamers on heavy tippet.
SOUTH FORK – Flows are still fairly low but the river is fishable all the way down to the reservoir. Skwalas are crawling and flying around by Valley School. Chubbies, water walkers and stimulators in size 10-12 have been working well on the surface. Could also see a few March Browns and blue winged olives popping. Dry/dropper or nymphing with a stonefly or attractor nymphs has been good as well. Streamers have also been catching some good fish.
CLARK’S FORK – Flows have been spiking with the warm weather and has the river off color, especially below Paint and Pat O’Hara Creeks. The clarity will hopefully improve with the cooler weather forecast in the next few days. Midges, blue winged olives, March Browns, stonefly & attractor nymphs as well as streamers.
