We are fishing early if you like it or not now. FWP has placed Hoot Owl Restrictions on The Clark Fork and Bitterroot Rivers. That means rods up at 2 pm.
We know it’s a bummer and can be a pain, but it’s for the best interest for the fish that we all love. This summer heat is hard on them and we can do our part to help out. So check the regs before you head out to make sure you are following the rules.
This link has all of the restrictions and reopenings as they come up. Check it before you get on the water.
