Start with a single dry early in the AM, the fish may or may not be coming up but there are willing and hungry fish..... Purple haze is the go to fly up there! After a single AM dry, switch to a hopper/dropper rig early afternoon. The afternoons have been tough and slowing down, nymphing would be a good bet. With the cooler weather in the forecast, the evening hatches should pick up and provide good fishing before dark!
We are coming into a big cool down this week and well into next week, highs in the 70's. We couldn't be happier! The fishing window will be extended and the evening (weather dependent) shoud provide some great hatches. Going to be a wet and chilly weekend in western MT this weekend... Happy fishing!
Our fly shop in Philipsburg is open. Stop by and see Katy or Bruce for most up to date reports. Good luck and we look forward to sharing our local knowledge with you. 406.859.9500.
