There is a ton of fly water from just up river from the town of Salmon to Shoup. Most people camp unless your lucky enough to get a room at North Fork or the Shoup store. It has been a great season up there so far, but I'm afraid the number of fishable days are numbered. Slush ice should be flowing soon, which makes it all but impossible to swing a fly. But as of now the water is clear. Last temps I took ranged from 39 to 44, and the water has been clear. We get them on all the typical stuff, but with as cold as the water is don't be afraid to throw huge flys on 3's and 6's.
