Bitterroot River

The Bitterroot river fly fishing is improving every day. Still a lot of water and not a ton of bugs yet. There are some Golden Stones, Yellow Sallies, Green Drakes and a few PMD’s kicking around. The lower and middle Bitterroot is still a bit slow for dry fly action and the upper end has been producing some good dry fly fishing with Golden Stones and Salmon Flies.

Blackfoot River

The Blackfoot River has been decent lately with good clarity and tons of bugs including Salmon Flies, Golden Stones, Yellow Sallies, Green Drakes, PMD’s and Caddis in the evening. We can’t say the dry fly action is great at this point do to the amount of bugs and full fish but metabolism will catch up and the fishing should improve every day. We’ve been picking up a few fish here and there on dries but the dropper and nymph game has been by far the most productive. We have also had some good streamer fishing this week too.

Clark Fork River


The fly fishing on the Clark Fork River has been decent lately. The clarity is improving every day and the dry fly fishing is picking up. Salmon Flies, Golden Stones, Yellow Sallies, Green Drakes, PMD’s and Evening Caddis are all hatching right now. The nymph and streamer fishing has been the most productive but there has been some great dry fly fishing day to day.

Rock Creek

Rock Creek fly fishing has been great lately with flows dropping to a more wadeable level and still enough water for floating. Salmon Flies on the upper sections and Golden Stones from the top to bottom. Dry fly fishing is the way to go right now but of course nymphing and streamer fishing will be productive too.
