Bitterroot River Fishing Report

Daily River Report

January 22, 2018

Fishing Rating:


It looks like another week of mild winter temps, meaning that the Bitterroot is a great afternoon option for curing cabin fever.  Double nymph rigs are the way to go right now.  Fishing slower, deeper walking speed water like inside bends and tail outs.  San Juans, Rubberlegs, Double bead Peacock Stones, Eggs, Princes and PTs.  Streamer fishing slow and deep is another option.  The fish aren’t going to move far to eat a streamer.  So make sure you aren’t ripping your streamers, but slow down big time.  Flash Minnows, Sparkle Minnows, Cheech Leeches and Peanuts are great winter bugs.  There are a few midges out and even a few fish rising.  It’s definitely not great dry fly fishing, but you could have a chance at your first 2018 dry fly fish.  Sz 18-22 Griffith’s Gnats, Adams or P-Haze’s.
