I hit the upper section around 2:00 this afternoon. A decent mayfly hatch about 2:45-3:00 but nothing rising and nothing striking dries or nymphs. I worked my way up river and found a spot that looked good. Noticed a few fish rising to some very small (gnats?) but couldn't get a thing. I got ready to head back to the truck and decided I'd throw the EHC on and drop a red bead-headed midge behind it and got one of them to take the EHC about 4:45. Good day :)

Way to be persistent and not let them push you around! I'm gonna snoop around somewhere up there tomorrow for a little while. Thanks for the report...

Hi, Can you guys direct me to a good spots to park the car and wade the Upper South Fork? I don't mind hiking to wading. Looking for some good spots that I can hit after work that are close to town.

Denny creek, exit 42 and 45. Ollalie State park. There is a forest service road that parallels the sf from exit 42 to 45 that lends easy access to the entire stretch.

Almost the same series of events and times of occurrence for me today too. I got an itty bitty one on a prince nymph mid-afternoon then broke out the EHC just before going home. Got one decent fish and missed another. I also lost a small green foam fly box if anyone happens to find one between Exits 38 & 42. :(

The Fishing Guide is rather confusing for the Snoqualmie Forks. So if I understand correctly the 3 forks above the falls are open year around for C&R?
