Enjoy and Good Luck!

Bitterroot River

The Bitterroot river fly fishing continues to fish well. There has been considerable bumps in flows with the recent warm up but fishing continues to be good regardless. More and more Skwalas are showing up every day with this warmer weather. Fish are still in their spring holding water like inside seems and walking speed water but are starting to move into faster holding water with the warm water temps. We still have been focusing on nymph droppers in the morning and dries late morning into the afternoon.

Blackfoot River

Fly fishing the Blackfoot River is still cold and a little off color. Not unfishable by any means but keep your expectations in check. Streamers and nymphs are the way to go focusing on on inside seems. Fish streamers slow and deep, and hit every inch of the run when nymphing. While the fishing on the Blackfoot is nothing to write home about, it’s a good place to get away from people and have the river to yourself.

Clark Fork River

Clark Fork fly fishing is still pretty slow with new push of water and darker clarity. We’ll see what the flows and weather does this week. Still fishable but you will be working hard for every fish. We’re hoping flows stabilize and water clears up. Focus on nymphs and streamers on inside seems.

Rock Creek

Fly fishing on Rock Creek has been good over the past few weeks. Even with a bump in flows, the fishing continues to produce. There are a few Skwalas out and we expect more and more to show up with the warmer weather. Nymphing is still your most productive tactic but dry fly fishing is an option in the afternoon. Streamer fishing is a great choice this time of year for fly fishing on Rock Creek too. Like the rest of our streams focus your time on inside seems and walking pace water.
