Clark Fork River Report 8/23/2023

The Rains and cooler weather have the river temps dropping well below hoot owl limits so I expect Monday the FWP will lift them for the rest of the season . The river is actually running about four degrees lower than last year at 68 degrees peak. That is good news going into September fishing. The hatches have also returned with a small variety of may flies. We found a few groups taking PMDs mid day yesterday. THere is a closure below Ferry Landing due to fire fighting at the Paradise Fire but with the rains that should be short lived as well . Most guides are fishing hopper dropper till they find a hatch the changing rods. Have fun in the cooler weather.
