Missoula Fishing Report
The Bitterroot fished well this weekend. Not to over inflate, I would say that the dry fly fishing was “Fair” on some banks and “Good” on others. We saw lots of Skwalas, Nemouras, and capnias. We also saw a few larger mayflies. March Browns? You tell me. The water is still high so some of the classic banks seemed a little pushy for skwala fishing. They were sitting in heavier water than we expected but the fish seemed to want to eat the bug regardless.
As far a bugs we threw the Rastaman Skwala, The PK Stone, The Bullethead Skwala. in the morning they are the Skiddish Smolt for a streamer and a pink worm/Rubber Legs for a nymph rig. We have a plethora of those bugs here at the shop.
The USGS Graphs are showing some consistency in a flat or downward trend. That means that the fishing should improve everyday. As long as we don’t get another push of water the spring fishing seems to have returned.
Stop by the shop for any of your Spring needs. We are totally stocked and ready to rock.
