  Blue ribbon fly fishing in Western Montana and Northern Idaho.  
River Report : CLARK FORK
August 27th and the river flow is 4,500 cfs and a bit murky. Missoula had quite a bit of rain over the weekend and the dirty water made its way down here on the 26th , slowing the bite considerably. I expect the flow to drop back by Friday the 29th and the fish should return to normal feeding and holding locations . The river has been fishing very well especially mid day with the fish working out in fast water as well as holding water. They are still willing to take small attractors over the natural trailers perhaps due to the large hatch of Hoppers. That's right the hoppers are out on the lower Clark Fork. We are fishing all stretches of the lower Clark Fork now with great success . The bite seems to start off slow and pick up at 11am. Even catching fish now in the riffles . We are getting the afternoon thunderstorms and cloud cover which helps the river to cool off overnight in addition to the cooler evening air temps which are dropping into the 40s. Morning river temps are in the mid 60's and each day cloud cover is different . The river should be clear by Friday with a visability of eight feet so the green drop offs are real easy to spot , thats also where the fish are . A variety of mayflies are out so we have a hatch to fish over as well . Steve
