Bitterroot River

The Bitterroot river fly fishing has been great over the last few days and should continue to fish well. We’ve seen plenty of Skwalas in the sun and March Browns in the clouds. The levels have been fairly level which is always good to see this time of year as they are often fluctuating during warm spells and rain. Fish have moved out of their winter holding water and in to late spring holding water with the warmer water temps. Skwalas, Nemouras, BWO’s and March Browns are all on the menu. At this point in time it appears that we will get at least another week or two before runoff hits.

Blackfoot River

Fly fishing the Blackfoot River has been decent lately with steady flows and warmer temperature. Still more of a nymph and streamer game this time of year but keep an eye out on cloudy days for BWO’s and March Browns. Keep your focus on slower runs and inside seems for fish stacked up. Deep nymph rigs and streamers is our go to on the Blackfoot this time of year.

Clark Fork River

Clark Fork fly fishing has been good the last few days now that water has cleared up a bit and flows remain fairly stable. We have had a few great days with Skwalas and March Browns on top. Nymphing will be the most productive and streamer fishing has been good too.

Rock Creek

Fly fishing on Rock Creek has been good the last few days with good numbers of Skwalas and March Browns hatching. The afternoon window has been the most productive for dry fly fishing while nymphing and streamer fishing has been solid all day long. We have been hearing good reports from the lower stretches all the way to the top end. Flows have been steady and should continue on that trend as long as we don’t see to much rain or a rapid increase in temperature.
