About Fly Fishing On The New Fork River

Fly fishing on the New Fork is similar to fishing a spring creek with its gin clear water and relatively stable water temperatures. We often match the hatch with specific flies with casts tight to one of the many root balls or undercut banks. Slow moving water gives the trout time to study your offering, so downstream drifts and good mending are critical.
