Bitterroot River Fishing Report

Daily River Report

October 21, 2016

Fishing Rating:


The Bitterroot has dropped nicely all week and the fishing has continued to get better.  Mahoganies and BWO’s are out in force still and the dry fly fishing has been good.  Make sure you have CDC Mahogany Duns, Copper Cripples, P-Hazes, BWO Flash Cripples, P-Adams and BWO extended bodies.  Nymphing in the mornings with a San Juan, Egg, PT, Rubberlegs or Prince has been steady.  Streamer fishing keeps getting better and better.  There is so much water in the river that ripping streamers has been a lot of fun.  A sink tip or sinking leader is helping in a big way get the fly down to where the fish are.  Olive/Gold, White/Gold and Yellow seem to bet the tickets right now.  JJ Specials, Lil Kim’s, Circus Peanuts, Sparkle Minnows, Kreelex and Silvey’s Sculpins.

We have a ton of new flies in the shop. 1/2 off Friday’s are still happening, every Friday all year long. (1/2 off your first dozen)
