Fishing Report 5.14

The Rivers are dropping right now. That is until we get this week of high temps. Get out there today or tomorrow. The big rivers are going to blow out by the weekend.

The Bitterroot –  The ‘Root will be an option for a very brief window. The worm game will be hot and throwing junk will put some big fish in the net.

The Creek – The Creek looks great. The water is dropping hard and running considerably more clear than the other rivers in the Missoula area. There are a lot of mayflies.  March Browns and BWO’s. We saw fish eating on top yesterday.

The Clark – The Upper Clark is muddy and the Lower Clark is muddier. This will be the last one to clear up. You have better options right now.

The Blackfoot – When The Foot turns that sexy green color the fishing will be off the wall. It is dropping now but that won’t last very long with the heat in the forecast.

The MO – The Mo has been fishing shit hot. The nymph game has been great. BWO, Czech’s, Sow bugs, and anything with fire bead has been putting a lot of fish in the net.

The creeks will open this weekend and they will be the first to have clean water in them. We love creek fishing. There is more than a lifetimes worth of water around Missoula in small creeks. Get out and explore something you have never fished. You might be surprised.
