Fishing Report + Rating


October 22, 2021

The Clarkfork has stayed finicky this fall with bugs not really showing up in some places where they should be.  BWO’s are out and a few Mahoganies in the afternoons.  Sz 14 Mahogany CDC Duns, Tilt Wing Duns and Brindle Chutes.  For the BWO’s the same just in a size 18.  Nymphing has been the most consistent way to get into fish with not many hatches happening.  BWO and Mahogany nymphs have still been the way to go.  Sz 14 – 18 jig PT’s, Spanish Bullets, Red Copper Johns, San Juans and Rubberlegs.  Streamer fishing is finally getting to be a great option.  Smaller streamers like Sparkle Minnows, Mason’s Junior, Flash Minnows, Baby Gonga’s and Mini-Dungeons.

There is still a tree down below Clinton.  There is a right channel that you can take around the tree right now, but as the water drops it will get hard to do.  Be careful.

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