Missoula Fishing Report 7/12/2015

Our beloved Blackfoot River on Thursday afternoon

Our rain dances must be making a difference, because we’re getting some strange moisture falling from the sky. If you are reading this report, please take a moment of silence, or just keep doing your jig. The Blackfoot actually dropped down to 61 degrees during the night, making for some content fish. We have some rain in the forecast, and the temps should finally be dropping as well. Don’t let the weather keep you inside… The fishing could be pretty swell. Shaded banks and heavier water could be key to getting into some big fish right now. Don’t hesitate to fish the deep runs in the middle of the river. Hoot Owl Restrictions are still in full force, get off the river by two pm!

Blackfoot River- spruce moths, goldens, PMDs, hoppers, San Juan worms, prince, stimis, caddis in the evening

Bitterroot River- Yellow sallies, PMDs, hoppers, mayflies, lightning bugs, rusty spinners

Clark Fork River- PMDs, hoppers, prince, chubby style attractor patterns, yellow sallies, San Juan worms, caddis in the evening

Rock Creek- big attractors, goldens, spruce moths, parachute adams, hoppers, evening caddis, nymphs and streamers in the heavy runs. (Do NOT overlook the heavier water!)
