Blackfoot River Fishing Report

Fishing Report + Rating

4/5

August 14, 2019

The Blackfoot is cooling off and the fishing is good!  The rain and cool temps have given all our rivers a nice break from the heat, which only makes for better fishing as we head into the middle of August.  Terrestrials are the main food item, although we are starting to see Trico’s on all our rivers.  A hopper/dropper rig is the best way to prospect for fish.  If you run into fish sipping Trico’s throwing a Tucker’s Twiggy, Organza Spinner with a sz 18-20 P-Haze in front.  Make sure you have a drag free draft and 5-6x tippet for those Trico fish.  Morning fishing is still the best and will be for a while.

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.
