Large terrestrials, like hoppers and beetles, offer up a great meal for hungry trout. Your favorite stimulator pattern will also do the job, and trail off a caddis pattern or a pink albert. The pinks start to hatch in the afternoon, and fish will be keyed into the emergers as well as the adults. Smaller terrestrials, like the pico spider or the green beetle, can bring up a fish, even if it has stuffed itself with hoppers. The fish on the South Fork tend not to pass up a smaller meal, even after gorging on larger insects.  Nymphing larger flies, like stonefly nymphs, or throwing larger streamers, can also be productive.

FLOOD STAGE. We don’t recommend going anywhere near that treacherous thing! Its going to be a while.



This will be a great spring to fish some of the local ponds, get in the float tube down at Bruneau Sand Dunes, or hike into Halverson lake. Come visit us for more still water ideas or visit our still water web page. You can also check the fish and game stocking reports to find out when and which ponds have recently been planted.
