The Rivers around Missoula are shaping up for an awesome summer of dry fly fishing. The high water has been a blessing in disguise. While June was a struggle to find clean water around Missoula, The rest of the summer will be a dry fly anglers dream. The Salmon Flies , Goldens, Drakes, P.M.D.’s, and Caddis are all coming off on all of the Missoula area rivers.
The Rivers are going to be crowded this weekend. If you are looking for some water to yourself I would look for a little creek you have never fished but always wanted to. This is a great time of year to do some exploring.
FWP has reopened The lowest section of The Blackfoot and soon reopening the Woodside area on The Bitteroot. Please use extream caution if you choose to float these stretches of the rivers. Portage left at the Woodside diversion. The dam is deceiving from the upstream view. Our rivers are still high and very strong, use caution this weekend.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
…Because you fish.
