Bitterroot River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Fishing has been ok but the weather change to actual winter could slow that down a bit. Nice fish are being caught, but as far as numbers go it's not anything crazy. Your best bet will be either nymphing or streamer fishing. If nymphing, throw a Hot Bead San Juan Worm with a pheasant tail (olive, grey) or any of your favorite dropper nymphs. If streamer fishing, try yellow, brown, or black and as always drag a bead head on a short leash behind. These are what big browns are looking for and if you're lucky some other fish might be interested in them as well.

Seven-day forecast 

The weather this week will be partly cloudy and cold, with snow showers here and there definitely time for waders!

Call us or stop by our fly shop at 3055 North Reserve Street in Missoula for specific locations or to pick up your bugs. Thanks and good fishing from the crew at:
