LOWER SHOSHONE – Flows have been bumped up to 1050 cfs and the river is off color. There are tons of Mother’s Day caddis hatching as well as blue winged olives. Water clarity is better closer to the dam. Look for heads and fish the edges with a dry or dry/dropper rig. Streamers can also be effective this time of year.
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 tricos but a sow bug, sunken trico, blue wing nymph or worm under a bobber will also produce. Streamers have also been picking up some nice fish lately.
NORTH FORK – Closed to fishing downstream of Newton Creek until July 1st! Still not a ton of trout above the closure but there are few. Flows are low but water clarity has remained good. Skwalas, March Browns, grey drakes, blue winged olives, stonefly nymphs, attractor nymphs, soft hackles, eggs and streamers on heavy tippet.
SOUTH FORK – Flows are still fairly low but the river has been fishing well. 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. Also a few March Browns, grey drakes 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 – Water clarity is better upstream of Paint and Pat O’Hara Creeks closer to the canyon mouth. Grey drakes, blue winged olives, March Browns, stonefly & soft hackle nymphs as well as streamers.
GREYBULL / WOOD – Low and clear. Skwalas, March Browns, grey drakes and blue winged olives.
