Clark Fork River

Tip of the week 

The dry fly action is normally good this time of year on the Clark Fork. With it being as high as it is, I would say go fish the tributaries or another river. If you do really want to fish it, we suggest starting Double down under an indicator with a hot bead or bling pink worm followed up by a tung prince or double bead stone but when you see bugs in the air or crawling around on the boat try the dry flies or dry dropper rigs.

Seven-day forecast 

We expect the Clark to rise with the warmer weather. Watch the flows and and long as they stay stable the river will fish. The Bitterroot continues to be busy so this might be a good option to avoid a bunch of fishers.
