Bitterroot River

Tip of the week 

Double nymph rig with a worm is your most productive set up. When the bugs are out, we've been able to feed rising fish with a single #18-#14 mayfly (purple haze, adams, mahogany or midges). There is the opportunity to blind fish a dry but it really depends on the weather that day.

Streamer fishing continues to be hit and miss.

Seven-day forecast 

Week looks to be decent for fishing with temps getting into the low 40's-high 30's. Lots of folks fishing still.

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:
