Bitterroot River Fishing Report
Daily River Report
September 26, 2016
Summer is coming this week with high sun and temps in the upper 70’s and low 80’s. The Root came at the end of last week and threw the fishing off a bit, but is on the drop now and will stabilize, meaning fishing will remain consistent. We are still seeing Trico’s out in the morning. Small flies like Tucker’s Twiggy’s, Organza Spinners and P-Hazes in sz’s 18-22. Mahoganies are out as well as a few BWO’s. With this sunny weather this week the hatch fishing will take a back seat to Hopper/Dropper or Attractor dry fishing. Hopper fishing should get better this week and throwing a Rubberlegs, Prince, San Juan, PT or Copper John off the back will increase your odds. Streamer fishing will be tough. Look for low light periods towards evening to help.
We have a ton of new flies in the shop. 1/2 off Friday’s are still happening, every Friday all year long. (1/2 off your first dozen)
