Blackfoot River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Most of our guides have been running a dry/dropper rig (#12 hopper w. a #16 copper john). Do ~4' of 3x (build your own leader style) to your bigger dry (8-12) and drop ~3' of 4x (a lot of us use fluoro, not necessary) to your dropper (10-16). This has been the most effective method on the foot and we've seen some great dry fly eats! Maybe try twitching your hopper every once in a while.

Seven-day forecast 

We are looking forward to a much needed cool down coming into this weekend. Highs going into next week will be in the high 70's and a lot of rain! Going to be a very enjoyable weekend, weather wise!
Stop in, say hi to KynsLee, Matthew, or Fred and we will give you the run down at Blackfoot River Outfitters 3055 North Reserve Street -- 406.542.7411.
We are open from 8am - 6pm throughout the season. Good Fishing!
