Blacksmith Fork River

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Anglers are finding success using small nymphs (size 18 and 20 midge patterns or smaller classic nymphs). You might also want to try dead-drifting small leech patterns under an indicator. Eggs and San Juan worms are working as top-fly, attractor patterns. Most folks are catching a mix of trout and whitefish. Most trout will be browns because they're experiencing some post-spawn hunger. The upper stretches of the Blacksmith Fork River can be difficult to access because of snow and ice. There is still fishable water in the lower areas.
