Fishing on the Elk River has turned on this past week. The water levels have dropped down and visibility has improved significataly. Fish have started to rise more consistently and earlier in the day. Although the river has bumped up a little due to some recent rain fall if you are planning to head down, the river should clear up before the weekend. With little rain in the forecast the elk should continue to produce some great fishing conditions. Fish are starting to key into bigger grasshopper and stonefly patterns again. Water temperatures are still a little cold therefore starting the day off with nymphs have proven to be more productive, as the water temperatures are colder earlier in the day. Closer to noon the fish should start to become more active and start looking for those tasty dry flies.
