Clark Fork River

Tip of the week 

The high you can go, the better you may do. It's going to be a double nymph rig, short with a worm :-) for your best action but expect Caddis in the evening and some fish tight to the Willows eating them (the rain may inhibit your chances).

Streamer fishing continues to be hit and miss for brownies on the upper, be sure to swing through the end of tailouts.

Seven-day forecast 

The upper Clark is a better option than the lower right now. There is rain in the forecast all week and into the weekend. We are waiting to see what the flows will do.
Big water out there - be careful whether you are on foot or in a boat.

Call us for up to the minute updates at 406.542.7411 or if you are in the area stop in our fly shop and say hi at 3055 North Reserve Street in Missoula for all your Orvis gear and the right bugs.
