Bitterroot River Fishing Report

Daily River Report

February 20, 2017

Fishing Rating:


The river is a bit cloudy, but very fishable.  The nights have been cold enough to stop any major melting and the rain didn’t do a ton, besides color it up.  Guys have been out floating as the river is completely open with just a bit of shelf ice.  Nymphing has been the name of the game with San Juans, Eggs, Double Bead Stones, PT’s, Princes and Rubberlegs.  Concentrate your time on the inside bends and slower tail outs.  Streamer fishing is an option, but you want to slow your retrieves to a crawl or even a dead drift.  This time of year Olive/Gold and White/Gold are great colors to turn some bigger fish.  Colder weather is coming our way at the end of the week.  Not so cold it will lock things up, but it will effect the water temps.

Don’t forget about our 13th annual Customer Appreciation Day March 4th from 10 am – 4pm.  Free food, giveaways every 1/2 hour, Tying Demonstrations and big sales storewide.  Don’t miss it!
