Mid-May to mid-June is typically high water on the Clark Fork. It varies by year so it is best to stay in touch with us.
Summer= Late June through August
Late June the CF clears and fishing coming on strong with Stoneflies and some bigger mayflies. The Caddis will just begin to show up at this time. Good bug activity runs through July, transitioning to Tricos & Terrestrials (hoppers) in August.
September into October are the glory Days of the Lower Clark Fork. The consistent hatches make for predictable fishing. Comfortable temperatures during the day and cool nights keep the water just right for trout and bugs alike. During this time we will see Baetis, October Caddis and Mahogany Duns until it becomes to foul to fish. (Mid-late Oct.) This is a beautiful time of year without the tourists of summer.
