Bitterroot – The Bitterroot is dropping and fishing is improving every day. The mid to upper river is fishing the best right now and is one of your best options to fish in the Missoula area. The dry fly fishing is really kicking into gear with Golden Stones, Yellow Sallies, Green Drakes and PMDs.

Blackfoot – After another big bump, the Blackfoot is coming back into shape. We have fished both the upper and lower end this week and both ends fished well. On the upper there is still plenty of Salmon Flies and Golden Stones to keep you busy dry fly fishing. The streamer fishing is really improving and we have seen some big fish this week and should continue to get better and better. Looks like all of our rivers around Missoula are finally coming down to decent flows.


Clark Fork – There are better options then the Clark. We will keep you posted in the next few weeks.



Rock Creek – Rock Creek is running high but clarity is good and one of your better options in the area. Salmon flies have passed but the Golden Stones, Yellow Sallies and Green Drakes have shown up and the fishing has been good. There is still a lot of water in the creek right now so be careful out there.
