Bitterroot River

Techniques 

Keep your nymph rigs short and reasonably heavy 2x-3x. Until you see fish up and or mayflies/stones on the water keep the droppers on: Prince, worms and green copper johns.

Seven-day forecast 

The weather has moderated and it is a pretty good outlook for fishing on the Bitterroot. If the clouds come in expect some big browns to roll up and eat your dries. 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!! 406.542.7411
