Clark Fork River Report April 6 2023

The River is flowing at 2,600 CFS and very very clear. Between the low flow and clarity you are able to see structure that is not visable during the summer . It helps explain why the fish hold in some spots and not others. Quite a learning experience to just float and study the river bottom and structure. But,,,the fishing. The bigger trout are taking BWOs and Midges in the back eddys. A good call is to trail a griffis nat behind that skwala. Several small dark perdigons bounced off the bottom will get you a twenty fish day right now . We have four or five weeks before that snow pack decides to melt out as runoff.
