Comments: A beauty of a day to fish the Clear fork River. Water temp ca. 64F, 30cfs flow rate and 2 ft + visibility. Air temp 70F and partly cloudy. First fish was a 17-incher (see pic) taken on an Aurora nymph. Other browns taken on a #12 Aurora or #18 Rainbow Warrior. Saw another 5 fly anglers on the river.

About those no trespassing signs posted at the pull-off by Wade & Gatton (see pic), I spoke with Steve Wade, and he says it is OK for fly fishers to fish there. He wants the campers and other miscreants to stay away. Display a Trout Unlimited or a Mohican Fly Fishers sticker on your car window to let them know you are fishing.
