Bitterroot River Fishing Report

Fishing Rating:


Not much has changed on the Root during the week as far as fishing goes.  Cooler water temps are making fish much happier, but we are still seeing mainly Trico’s and Terrestrials.  Word of a few Hecuba’s is out, which is all it takes sometimes.  Having a few sz 10-14 Brindle Chute’s in your box is a good idea.  For the most part though it’s Trico’s in the morning and Hopper/Dropper later on when the Trico’s are done.  Hopper’s with an Ant or Beetle off the back fished tight to cover has been a good rig as well.  Don’t be afraid to twitch your hopper.

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)
