Blackfoot River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Nymphing is definitely your best bet - Hot Bead San Juan with a smaller nymph dropper (choose your favorite) seems to be the for sure thing to lock up some fish. Just be sure to always double down with the nymphs (use two) and look for the heads of the bigger pools and runs - knee to chest deep green water with good chop. If they aren't active there move down into the slow water and deepen up your rig.

Seven-day forecast 

Warmer temps on the way should only better the prospects for angling on the Blackfoot. Unlike other area rivers, if you are going up the Blackfoot and it looks a bit off color - don't expect it to get clearer on up. It won't. Stay low if it is off color. Water is 3 times the normal for this time of year so waders beware.

Stop in, say hi to Terri, John, Matthew, Matt 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 8:30am - 6pm Monday-Friday and 8:30am-5pm Saturdays and closed Sundays.

Happy Fishing!
