Bitterroot River Fishing Report at Darby

Daily River Report

Fishing Rating:


Even though the weather is warm and inviting the fishing has become a challenge, particularly fishing on top. While you can still get yourself into some solid trico action, the BWOs and mahoganys aren’t producing like we would like.

If you see some of these bugs coming off however, give em a shot. Throw on a Brooks Sprout Mahogony/BWO or a Quiggly Hackle Stacker BWO, and you might just find a few top water hungry trout! Other than finding action on top, throwing the ever faithful rubberlegs with a purple prince will find you some fish.

Nymphs and dryflies aside, it is prime time for the other other dryfly: streamers. Make sure you are stocked up on Dali Lamas, Bellyachs, Sculpzillas, and Bellydancers, because those big nasty fish are devouring big nasty flies right now.
