Fly Fishing Guide – Bitterroot River Fishing Report

Bitterroot River Fishing Report

June 15
The Bitterroot is clear and dropping.  Salmonflies and golden stones are hatching up on the Forks of the Bitterroot with solid dry fly action when the weather cooperates.  The upper has been the most consistent with a dry/dropper rig.  Nymphing and dry/dropper rigs can produce some good sized trout on the middle river right now.  Flows are still high with new log jams and channels so use caution while wading or floating.

Fly Fishing Guide – Blackfoot River Fishing Report

Blackfoot River Fishing Report

June 15
The Blackfoot is still high and a little off-color.  There are salmonflies out through most of the river although the fish don’t seem too interested yet.  Nymphing and streamer fishing has been most effective with the occasional window of dry fly fishing.  This river should only get better as flows continue to drop.

The Clark Fork will be our last local river to come into shape.  It is still too high and off color to offer any decent fishing yet.

Fly Fishing Guide – Rock Creek Fishing Report

Rock Creek Fishing Report

June 15
Rock Creek is giving up the best fishing in the area right now.  There are salmonflies and golden stones and good opportunities to fish a single dry fly almost every day.  Dry/dropper and nymph rigs will also find plenty of fish.  Flows are still high so floating is the best bet.  As always use caution on Rock Creek.

The Missouri has been fishing extremely well this spring.  Nymphing has been consistent with good dry fly and streamer options as well.  PMDs are the main hatch with a good dry fly window on most days.

Tony Reinhardt tells us about another day on the river…

…Monday was the last day with Bill and Dan on the Mo and we decided to do a double float today.  We launched at Wolf Creek with no one else around and Bill picked up two nice fish in the first 2 spots and then Dan connected with a good rainbow just below that.  The next pass in that run produced a double for the guys and it seemed a lot like yesterday although the weather was much nicer today.

The fishing has been so good the last few days that a good drift in the right spot is going to get rewarded, and Dan and Bill had bent rods often in the morning.  We had a few more doubles in the early session and some big fish.  Dan had a big female that went 21″ and there were lots of fat rainbows from 18-20″.  We pulled the boat out of the water at Craig after lunch and headed up to the dam in the afternoon.

The guys hooked up twice in the first run and then Bill landed a big bow at the tailout of that run.  Dan added another in the next spot before Bill stuck a 20″ bow and then a big 21″ male in back to back runs.  That was the start of Bill’s hot streak as he picked off several more in the next few spots and then the guys finished up strong with a rainbow and brown trout double and one more double right above the take out.  It was another great day on the Missouri with a couple of anglers I really enjoy sharing the water with.  I look forward to seeing Dan and Bill again next month in Missoula.
