Bitterroot River

The Bitterroot river fly fishing took a bit of a hit with the warm weather, followed by snow, followed by rain. There was a large push of water which turned fishing off for a few days. It has leveled out and starting to drop as of today. Should fish ok for the next few days but expect nymphing to be the most productive strategy. We’ll see what the weather brings us in the next few days but we expect it to start fishing on top again and should continue to fish good.

Blackfoot River

Fly fishing the Blackfoot River has seen a significant bump over the last few days. The clarity isn’t great but still fishable. This wouldn’t be our first option to fish this week but we hope levels come back down and water to clear up a bit. Might be a better option towards the end of this week and next week. Focus on deep inside seems with streamers and nymphs.

Clark Fork River

Clark Fork fly fishing has been slow over the last few days with the bump in flows. Since everything dumps into the Clark Fork, it will be the last one to clear up. We are hoping it improves by next week but don’t expect great fishing any time soon. Fish are still found in the inside seems and slower paced water. Nymphing and streamers are the main game for now.

Rock Creek

Fly fishing on Rock Creek has seen the same push of water like the rest of streams around Missoula. It’s on the drop as of today and fished decent even through the bump. Streamers and nymphs have been the most productive but big dries on top have moved a few fish in the afternoon. Starting to see some adult Skwalas hatching over the last week. Focus on inside seems and walking speed water with nymphs for the best fishing.
