Blackfoot River

Tip of the week 

Dry/dropper (salmon fly with a worm or rubber legs) would be a good option in the afternoon and into the evening. Double nymph rigs remain your best option for the morning until it warms up. We've had good luck on double bead stone nymphs!

Fish are being picked up out of the riffle drop offs to the deep slow edges. On the upper, be sure to work those back currents/eddies... there are fish to be picked up if you are willing to put the work in.

Streamer fishing has been ok on the lower, its worth a shot on the upper sections. We had good luck on olive and more natural colors this past weekend. Be sure to swing out on each cast, we've been picking fish up with that.

Seven-day forecast 

The first part of the week is WARM (downright hot) with thunderstorms and lightning until Friday. They are calling for rain and a cool down this weekend.

We have guides out every day so call us to get the skinny from yesterday.

Stop in, say hi to Terri, John, KynsLee, Matthew, Matt or Fred and we will give you the run down at Blackfoot River Outfitters 3055 North Reserve Street -- 406.542.7411.
