Fishing Report + Rating


July 7, 2020

The Bitterroot continues to drop and the fishing gets better daily.  Goldenstones, Yellow Sallies, PMD’s and a few Green Drakes are out in the afternoons.  PMD’s have been the main bug, but each day is a bit different.  Fish are eating a smaller Golden in the 12-14 range.  Drop a PMD jig type nymph off the back to double your chances.  PMD’s have been coming off good in the afternoons.  Tiltwing Duns, Galloup’s Found Link, Extended Bodies and P-Hazes.  We should start to see spinners any day now so have a few Rusty Spinners with you for the sippers.

1/2 off Friday’s are still happening, every Friday all year long. (1/2 off your first dozen dries or nymphs)

Give us a call or stop by the shop for up to the minute fishing reports.
