FISHING REPORT 3/17
The Blackfoot is still a little chilly for great fishing but if you are like many of us at the shop then you may find yourself up here and the only boat on the water. We have floated the lower Foot quite a bit in the last few weeks and you may not be catching 20+ fish in a day but the fish we are catching on the streamers up there has made up for lack of numbers. Nymphing inside bends will produce some numbers if the streamer game isn’t producing for you.
On the lower end we are starting to see some dry fly fishing pick up a bit. The streamer fishing has been very productive and we have seen some big fish eating streamers through out the day. We haven’t seen Skwala adults out on the Clark yet but we have been throwing them anyways in the afternoon and have been seeing a few fish here and there that are interested. Not the dry fly fishing we usually see in the spring on the Clark but it is getting close. Nymphing inside seems will be your most productive tactic.
The nymphing and streamer fishing on Rock Creek has been really good so far this year. Still looking for a jump in water temps to get the dry fly madness popping. Tell then nymphing slower then usual water and dredging streamers slowly will get the fishes attention.
