Clark Fork River Fishing Report

Fishing Report + Rating


October 20, 2019

The Clarkfork is fishing well and we are still throwing dry flies.  BWO’s are out in the afternoons, along with a few Mahoganies depending on the day.  BWO’s like Tilt Wing Duns, Comparaduns, P-Hazes and Adams in 18-20’s fished on light tippet.  Mahoganies are a sz 14 and when you see them start fishing them.  Same patterns as the BWO’s just in the appropriate color and size.  Nymphing when fish aren’t rising has been very good.  Mayfly nymphs like Perdigons, Jig PT’s, Pyscho Mays and Copper Johns with a Rubberlegs, San Juan or Egg have been the ticket.  Streamer fishing has been good to very good with all the clouds we are getting making for fish that aren’t afraid to chase.  JJ Specials, Silvey’s Sculpin, Mason’s Junior, Smoke n Mirrors, Mini-Dungeons and Sparkle Minnows.

1/2 off Friday’s are still happening, every Friday all year long. (1/2 off your first  dozen dries or nymphs)
