Blackfoot River Fishing Report

Daily River Report

May 23, 2016

Fishing Rating:


It’s slowly risen over the last 3 days because of rain, but it’s still fishable.  Sub-surface is about all we are doing right now.  Nymphing Rubberlegs, San Juans, Double Bead Stones, Zonkers, Belly Dancers, Sparkle Minnows and Lil Kims is the way to go in these big water conditions.  All the fish are pushed to the banks and holding tight.  Streamer fishing has been good with some nice fish being caught.  Flashy streamers are getting it done.  Sparkle Minnows, Kreelex, Lil Kims, Circus Peanuts and Dungeons.

The river is big, be cautious both floating and wading.  The water can be faster and deeper than you think.  Scout things out and make sure you know where to go if you’re floating.  If you’re a novice rower, don’t go.  It’s not worth getting into trouble.  BE CAREFUL!
