Bitterroot River Fishing Report

Fishing Report + Rating


April 6, 2020

The Bitterroot is fishing very good right now!  Skwala’s, March Browns and BWO’s are all out and with clouds around this week and warmer weather should be really good.  It depends on how much rain we get, but if things hold this week it should be great fishing.  The fish are getting wise to Skwala’s as most people are fishing them.  You need a low profile Skwala like a Water Walker, Dancing Ricky or Cadillac Skwala to fool them.  BWO’s and March Browns are starting to hatch in the afternoons and a sz 14 Brindlechute, Carnage MB, Purple Haze or an EP MB for the March Browns.  A sz 16-18 BWO Tilt Wing Dun, CDC Dun, P-Haze or Adams for the BWO’s out there.  This week should make for good streamer fishing. We have a great streamer selection for the spring tied right here in Montana.

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.
