Blackfoot River Fishing Report

Fishing Report + Rating


April 6, 2020

The Blackfoot is a great choice right now as it’s not as crowded and fish are eating.  There are BWO’s, a few Skwala’s and a few March Browns out as well.  This week should really get things going with warmer weather in the forecast.  Look for afternoon fishing to be the best.  A skwala/dropper combo will be a good bet for most of the day, until you see BWO’s hatching.  Throw on a sz 16-18 CDC Dun, Flash Cripple or Tilt Wing Dun for those sippers.  Sub-surface action with nymphs like Double Bead Stones, Rubberlegs, Perdigons, Jig Princes and San Juans will be a good bet too.  Streamer fishing is always a great option with cloudy and spitting rain weather.  The water is still cold so make sure you keep things low and slow with the streamers.


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