Clark Fork River

Tip of the week 

The Clark is probably your best bet to find fish rising consistently in the winter below Missoula. On warmer afternoons, look to the slicks and inside eddy line for fish up feeding on them. But the best bet will be to nymph, and perhaps streamer fish. As for what nymphs to use, try a San Juan Worm with a prince to start (or any of your favorite droppers).

Seven-day forecast 

Cold and cloudy wintery weather expected again after a hand full of nice days and decent fishing. We gotta believe that following this cold snap it'll be smooth sailing on into March and good fishing.
