Pat Dorsey’s Stream Report: Williams Fork River

The Williams Fork is one of the prettiest places on the planet.  This stretch is proof that trout don’t live in ugly places.

Current Conditions

Clarity: Excellent

14 Day Forecast: Look for intermittent hatches of midges.

Tips and Other Information:  Flows are excellent considering the time of year.   Anglers should prepare themselves for intermittent hatches of midges. Dead drifting tiny midge larvae and pupae in the slow, deep pools is your best bet right now.   Egg-midge combos are one of the most effective strategies. Matt’s Midge, Parachute Adams, and Griffith Gnats are fooling a few fish on the surface during the height of the hatch. If you look for them, you’ll find a few rising fish in the slower pools and tailouts.

Effective Patterns:  #20-22 Mercury Midge, #20-22 Manhattan Midge, #20 Pale Olive Midge Larva, #22-24 Black Beauty, #22-24 Bling Midge, #22-24 Top Secret Midge, #22-24 Minute Midge, #22-24 Jujubee Midge, #22-24 Matt’s Midge, #22-24 Griffith Gnat, and #24-26 Parachute Adams.
