Blackfoot River Fishing Report
The Nymphing is good and the crowds are non existent on the Blackfoot. Its a nice change of pace if you have been chasing the dry fly bite the last few weeks. Its a great place to avoid crowds and have a stretch of river to yourself. The Worm behind a large Stonefly nymph or streamer is the combo for the Blackfoot right now.
Clark Fork River Fishing Report
The afternoon has been best, slim pickings in the morning. Hatches of March Browns and Baetis will get the fish looking up if the sun and wind cooperate. If your from Connecticut you could “match the hatch” with a snowshoe emerger. Or you could drift a size 8 Skwala over the risers…..
Bitterroot River Fishing Report
Still fishing Skwala dries. More and more Mayflies are making an appearance. Mostly Baetis at this point but hatches of March Browns could appear any day now. Its been busy on the Bitterroot and reports seem to vary depending on the stretch of river and the day. Some days have been better than others but overall the dry fly fishing remains pretty solid river wide.
Weather and River Flow
We have stable flows area wide at the moment. Tuesday we have temps in the forecast above seventy degrees. There’s a lot of snow in the hills yet to make its way into the river system. A bump of water will surely come from this. How much water is hard to predict.
