Bitterroot River Fishing Report

Daily River Report

October 20, 2017

Fishing Rating:


Clouds and rain are back in the forecast, as well as cooler temps.  The Mahoganies and BWO’s are still going strong and we’ve had some amazing dry fly fishing this week and it should continue for the next week or more.  A thin bodies mahogany like a Tilt wing dun, CDC Dun, Quill Body Parachute or Extended Body is the ticket.  Same goes for BWO’s in a sz 18.  Too fat a body and it’s not getting eaten.  Afternoons are when the hatch is happening so no need to get out early.  Streamer fishing has been really good this week too and it won’t stop until it gets really cold.  Our favorite streamers right now are Drunk and Disorderlies, EP Streamers, Smoke N Mirrors, Mr. Creepo’s, Dirty Hippies and Sparkle Minnows.

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