The Elk is still running high and has colour but it is fish-able. In slower water such as back eddies, fish will look up to larger dries such as stoneflies. The mouths of creeks are good bets currently as they provides clean water. Stonefly nymphs in black or tan will be effective choices. Streamers are a good option if you want to chase bulls as well. Double bunnies in Olive and White and Black Muddy buddies are good patterns for the elk currently.

Tributaries to the Elk are running clear and fish are looking up. They can both be easily waded as well. Michel and Lizard have been producing fish on stonefly dries as well as green drake dries. If you want to nymph, green drake and stoneflies are again the most effective choices.

If you feel like going lake fishing, go to Summit lake as the travelling edges are out. Fished last hour of light and smallest fish was 5lbs with biggest 10lbs. All on dry fly the Mikeluk Sedge and Goddard caddis, making them them best dries to use.
