Bitterroot River

The Bitterroot river fly fishing continues to produce as water levels are dropping in to a good range. Still a little high for the wade fisherman on the main river but the upper stretches are where you want to focus your time for wading. The lower, middle and upper have produced well for our boats this week. Hatches consist of Golden Stones, Yellow Sallies, PMD’s and Hoppers.

Blackfoot River

The Blackfoot River fly fishing has been great lately with a mix of hatches like Hopper’s, Golden Stones, PMD’s and Yellow Sallies. Flows are still above average but dropping quickly. Fish are starting to move into their summer lies in the heavier runs and faster outsides.

Clark Fork River

The Clark Fork River fly fishing has picked up in the last week with some great dry fly fishing from top to bottom. PMD’s, Yellow Sallies, Golden Stones and Hoppers are all on the menu as of late. Flows are still well above average but clarity is good and fish are happy.

Rock Creek

Rock Creek fly fishing is still well above average which is making wade fishing tougher then usual. Focus on the upper stretches for more manageable wade fishing as the water is smaller up top. For hatches, focus on PMD’s, Golden Stones and Yellow Sallies.

Bitterroot River

The Bitterroot river fly fishing has been good lately with hatches that consist of PMD’s, Yellow Sallies, Golden Stones and a few Hoppers starting to show up. The flows are still above average which makes the wade fishing a bit tougher but there is still plenty of good wade opportunities on the upper stretches and the West and East Fork. Our boats have mostly been on the middle to upper stretches and a few on the lower too. The Bitterroot should continue to fish better and better each day as the flows drop.

Blackfoot River

The Blackfoot River fly fishing has been great lately with a smorgasbord board of hatches including PMD’s, Yellow Sallies, Golden Stones, Hoppers and some great evening Caddis hatches. Flows are still a little bit above average but clarity is good and should continue to fish well through July. Streamer fishing has been productive early to mid morning and some great dry fly fishing throughout the day.

Clark Fork River

The Clark Fork River fly fishing is picking up throughout the system. Our Missoula fly fishing guides have started fishing dries this week and we’ve been hearing some great reports from them. PMD’s, Golden Stones, Yellow Sallies, Hoppers and Caddis in the evening has been the name of the game. With flows dropping and water clearing, the Clark Fork should be a great option for the rest of July.

Rock Creek

Rock Creek fly fishing is a great option this time of year but flows are still twice the average which is making wade fishing a little tougher. The upper stretches have less water and more wade friendly but the lower end is still a good option. Focus on Golden Stones, PMD’s, Yellow Sallies and Hoppers. Rock Creek should be a great option for the rest of the summer with the higher then average flows.

Bitterroot River

The Bitterroot river fly fishing continues to be decent even with higher then average flows. The middle and upper end has been the most consistent and the lower is coming around. Golden Stones, Green Drakes, Yellow Sallies and PMD’s are all on the menu. This week the weather forecast is calling for mixed days of clouds and bright sun. Focus on Mayflies on the cloudy days like Green Drakes and PMD’s, and Stoneflies like Goldens and Sallies in the sun. The water levels are dropping day by day and should continue to fish well.

Bitterroot River

The Bitterroot river fly fishing has taken a bit of a hit in productivity the last few days with rising water. Before this rain event the dry fly fishing was starting to pick up in the middle and upper stretches with Golden Stones, Green Drakes, PMD’s and Yellow Sallies. Expect more Green Drakes in the coming days with the clouds and Stoneflies following with the sun in the upcoming forecast. It appears that the brunt of the storm hit yesterday but still looking at significant rain today. Expect it to level off and begin dropping again in the next few days. It may be more of a nymph and streamer game today with fewer dry fly opportunities.

Blackfoot River

The Blackfoot River fly fishing has a been great the last few weeks with Golden Stones and Salmon Flies throughout the system. The Rainy weather has brought an increase in flows and put the Stoneflies down. Streamer and nymph fishing remained fairly consistent through the rising water. The Blackfoot should level off quickly and start dropping in the coming days and should continue to produce some great fishing with Salmon Flies on the upper stretches and Golden Stones throughout the system. Be sure to have some Green Drakes with you in the next few days during the cloudy weather.

Clark Fork River

The Clark Fork River fly fishing was starting to produce some nice fish on dry flies last week but the recent rain has effected the clarity. Streamer fishing and nymphing is the best option this week and we expect it to come back in to shape later this week.

Rock Creek

Rock Creek fly fishing has been great lately. Salmon Flies are pretty much over, but the Golden Stones has been producing some great fishing. Expect a strong Green Drake hatch in the next few days with Golden Stones following on the sunny days. Dry fly fishing may be a little tougher today but should still produce some decent fishing. Streamers and nymphs are great options as the water rises on Rock Creek.
