Catch rates were slower this past week on the North Fork of the Clearwater (river sect 05). Anglers were spread out throughout this area and were seen using bobber and jig set-ups.
Most of the angling effort on the main stem of the Clearwater was focused around the Slaughter House hole (Dworshak National Fish Hatchery up to the second boat ramp access) and at the Pole Yard (Down from the Clearwater Fish Hatchery).
The South fork of the Clearwater saw most of its effort evenly spread above the Harpster Grade to Mt. Idaho Grade. Anglers used a variety of gear and the fish did not seem to have a particular favorite.
All reports are considered preliminary until the final report
