Clark Fork River Fishing Report + Rating

3/5

February 20, 2024

The Clarkfork is very fishable and worth an afternoon of walking in to a few spots.  Winter nymphing set ups with TJ Hookers, Front St. Stones, Double Bead Stones, Rubberlegs, Perdigons, Spanish Bullets, Worms and Jig Princes fished in the inside bends and slow drop offs will be your best bet.  Streamer fishing is tough this time of year on the Clarkfork, but you could convince some the bigger fish to eat.  Make sure to get your streamers deep and work them slow.  Fish won’t move far for a streamer this time of year.

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

Montana SNOTEL Current Snow Water Equivalent % of Normal

SWE is an acronym for Snow Water Equivalent, signifying the quantity of liquid water present in snow. Essentially, if you were to take a certain snow depth and melt it, the resulting water height would be representative of the SWE. This is how we can predict river flows and water levels for fishing season.
