Clark Fork River Fishing Report + Rating


September 15, 2023

The cooler weather we are having is making for some much happier fish.  The Clarkfork did get a bit dirty from rains this past week, but still very fishable.  There are trico’s out in the later morning early afternoons.  Size 20-22 duns and spinners with 5-6x tippet is a must.  Hopper/Dropper later on in the afternoons.  Sz 10-12 Pink, Tan or Purple hoppers with a Rubberlegs, TJ Hooker, Perdigon, Jig PT or Jig Prince dropper has been the ticket.  Streamer fishing in the mornings is starting to pick up and will only get better as the month goes on.

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