Fishing Report + Rating


December 2, 2020

The Bitterroot has been fishing pretty good for this time of year.  You’re not going to have a great dry fly day, but the nymphing has been good and streamer fishing has been decent.  Nymphing Princes, Rubberlegs, Double Bead Stones, Perdigons and San Juans in the inside bends and slower drop offs will get you into fish.  Make sure to work those areas as fish are stacked in there.  Streamer fishing is happening the last couple hours of light as that is when the water temps are at their highest.  Smaller streamers like Baby Gonga’s, Mini Dungoens, Smoke N Mirrors, Sparkle Minnows and Buggers.

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.
