Bitterroot River

Fishing Report + Rating


April 18, 2018

River Levels are fluctuating a bit, but nothing that is putting the fishing off.  We’ve had good dry fly fishing this week, but with the sun coming out it could be a tough couple days.  Skwalas, March Browns, BWOs are all on the menu in the afternoons.  GH Water Walkers, Rogue Stones, Catch’s Purple Skwala, EP Split Wing BWOs/March Browns, P-Hazes and Adams on top.  Bright sunshine the next couple days might mean you’ll need to nymph to get fish to eat.  San Juans, 20 Inchers, Double Bead Stones, Tungsten Skwala Nymphs, Jig Head PT’s, Lucent PT’s and Princes.  Streamer fishing will be really tough in the sun.  If you are a die hard streamer addict switch around your colors until you find what they want.

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