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 sporadic hatches of midges. Prepare for low flows and technical fishing.

Tips and Other Information: Flows are excellent right now on the Williams Fork, especially with the recent stream restoration project that created some deeper runs and pools for trout to overwinter. Anglers should prepare themselves for sporadic hatches of midges and look for the occasional fish eating adults in the slower runs. The best fishing is between 10:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. when the water warms up a few degrees
