Clark Fork River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The Clark Fork is big for this time of year and the fishing has been tough but getting better everyday. The high you can go, the better you may do. It's going to be a double nymph rig, short with a warm :-) for your best action but expect Caddis in the evening and some fish tight to the Willows eating them.

Streamer fishing has been hit and miss for brownies on the upper but the bows remain on them both above and below Missoula.

Seven-day forecast 

The lower Clark is big for this time of year but dropping every day this week! Weather predictions through the week are calling for steady temps in the 60s and cooler nights, things will continue to slow and stabilize.
Be careful whether you are on foot or in a boat.
