Official Fishing Report from Mike Visintainer on NF Clearwater
Hoodoo Pass is now open. 10.7 miles below Cedars Campground there is a large washout in the road which is only crossable with high clearance 4x4 trucks or SUV's. Low clearance trucks / trailers / campers / cars / low clearance SUV's will not be able to cross the washout. Toyota Tacoma style trucks or jeep wranglers will work. Use CAUTION and DO AT YOUR OWN RISK. Mike did cross in his Tacoma.
So how was the fishing? Okay. Hatches are sparse, water is still cold. A few small goldens out, midges, pmd's, and caddis. Mike hooked a couple dozen standard sized cutts on his drive along the NF Clearwater. Foam golden patterns were the best. Since hatches were sparse there weren't any rising fish, but blind casting into any soft water would produce. Water is very limited still due to higher level, but adventurous anglers can find water. Mike did drive all the way to Kelly Forks Ranger Station, but did not fish Kelly Creek. He reports in the next couple weeks it should really shape up nicely.
