Clark Fork River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Single dries early in the morning has been doing well! Through the day, we are running hopper/dropper rigs. We are switching the nymph rigs occasionally, depending on the stretch and weather. Pretty "meat and potato" fishing with the opportunity to technically fish tricos to rising fish.
