Anyone fish the Lower Mountain Fork in the past couple weeks? Is it still small midges, small dries and streamers up there or are there some other must have patterns for the LMF this time of year?

Thanks in advance.

I heard the water's very warm, like in the '70's.

Went up there for a camping trip this past weekend and found that out the hard way! Water temps were very high, leave the waders at home if you go. Evening Hole isn’t being stocked yet due to high water temps. Spillway creek and faster/shady runs are about the only places tto fish for trout right now. Bass and other warm water species were very active.

Nothing touched a dry fly, midges and nymphs worked well. Going to wait until it cools down to go back up there.

Thanks for the report. I was considering a trip this weekend, but I'll hold off for a bit.

Now where to go instead....

Good info! It makes me wonder how the guides there are getting it done!
