South Fork Brown trout

South Fork of the Snake River Fly Fishing Report 8.6.11

The South Fork fished well this week.  Flows were above 13,000 cfs and the water clarity is still about 2-3 feet but the fish were eating!  Streamers and nymphs were the ticket.  Black or brown streamers worked best as they give a great silhouette for trout to key in on.  Nymphing is still producing alot of whitefish, but there are some nice trout in the mix as well. As of today, flows have been reduced to 12,000 cfs. Some of the riffles should show up now and dry fly fishing will improve.  Bring it on!
