Blacksmith Fork River

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Fishing slowed down a bit for most anglers. The fish have become lethargic with the colder weather. Anglers are having some success using small, dark midges and egg patterns in sizes 18, 20 and 22. Brown trout are still spawning and can be seen on their redds. Be careful not to step on their redds (spawning areas) while fishing. Watch this helpful video to learn more about redds and how to spot them. Water clarity is very good right now, and water flows are normal. Thanks to Roundrocks Fly shop in Logan for the report.
