Bitterroot River

Fishing Report + Rating


December 11, 2018

This week doesn’t look as cold as last week, but the Bitterroot is getting quite a bit of slush and shelf ice.  Be careful out there and just fish in the afternoons.  Nymphing is the way to go from here until spring.  San Juans, Eggs, Double Bead Stones, Princes, PT’s, Rubberlegs, Lightning Bugs and Midges.  Streamer fishing is always a possibility, but don’t expect the fish to chase streamers very far.  Good winter time streamers are Smoke N Mirrors, EP Minnows, Sparkle Minnows and Circus Peanuts.  Fish them deep and slow…

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.
