Hoppers (8-12) with a smaller dropper (12-16) has been working well at this level. A double dry or single dry rig has been working in the mid morning - try a Purple haze trailed by a trico spinner.
We are coming into a huge cool down this week with rain and a frost advisory until 9/12, highs in the 50's-60's. The weekend should warm back up a bit, highs in the 70's. Looks like "fall fishing" is coming early to Montana!
Call us or stop by our fly shop at 3055 North Reserve Street in Missoula for specific locations or to pick up your bugs. Remember- "Two for Tuesdays", bogo on bugs!! Time to stock up on all your smaller dries and nymphs ,,, 406.542.7411.
