If you like piña coladas

It’s been a kinda crazy summer weather and flow wise. I tell folks count on 90’s-100’s July thru August… Not this year. First couple weeks in July we had some pretty solid rain. And cooler than average temps. Then just is things heated up and flows started to drop. Once again we got some rain […]

Not a Typical season

Well, it looked like we had a chance of water issues in June. The snow melted quick. But Just after that we get a cool summer with a good bit of rain. I don’t ever remember a July with temps in the 70’s and almost a daily shower or two. So. Thing are going pretty […]

May Be a while

Well it’s gotta melt some time…. And right now is the time. All the rivers have doubled in size the last couple of weeks. And the warm weather on tap will most likely keep it coming. The conditions right now are colored up and dangerous in a sense. Especially if you’r considering wading. The silver […]

Slowly Thawing

Snow is still high on the banks. Most put in and take outs are covered. And the water temps are cold. I know it sounds negative. But the truth is best. We’re still in a Winter condition stage. But the future looks good. Getting out on the weekdays is a good bet. If i’ts sunny […]

Late Fall report 2018 Missoula.

Those 60 degree sunny days have pretty much said goodbye. We’ve moved into that winter transition where its overcast/raining, with much shorter windows of opportunity. Doesn’t mean its not happening, just no reason to be out there too early. Blackfoot has some cool water temps and fishes best from about 1-4 pm. Mostly BWO’s and […]

Fall Fishing Report

Things are feeling a little more like Autumn. This next few day’s will see cool weather. Highs in the 60’s and some clouds will help the Mayfly’s. Have your BWO box and Hecuba’s. Hopper fishing is still really good on most stretches with a trico dropped off the back. Flows are still at record high […]

August 7 report

Probably the best conditions we’ve had in a long time for end of the first week in August. Flows are still pretty good and no restrictions! Pretty much hopper’s and Moth’s for the fish. Some day’s/stretches the moth’s are there and some their not?? hard to say why they don’t show some days. The Root […]

Salmonflies and Spruce Moths

Never have seen it before. But it’s happening now. Salmonflies are still around and the spruce moth’s are gonzo. River levels have finally leveled off to where they should be just about everywhere. Blackfoot has been fishing best from around 9 to about 12. And it seems like the water temps aren’t the issue on […]

Great fishing! depending on where you are July 1st fishing

  We’re about where we should be considering the snowpack for the year. In essence there has been 2 runoff’s. Things had shaped up and looked good about 2 weeks ago. Then the rain/monsoon came and postponed things. So depending on the stretch you pick things can be great or still about a week away. […]

June 13th Shaping up nice

Thing’s are looking pretty good on almost all the rivers. The Blackfoot has turned Glacier Green with about 2 feet of Vis. The goldens are thick and some salmon flies also if you check the willows. good time for a double nymph rig, always looking for that afternoon dry fly window. Bitteroot is just about […]
