Blackfoot River Fishing Report + Rating


October 3, 2023

Fishing is good on the Blackfoot.  October Caddis, BWO’s, Mahoganies and terrestrials are all on the menu.  Fish are looking up in the afternoons and depending on the day you’ll need to be ready with the appropriate bugs.  Sz 14-16 Mahoganies, Sz 18-20 BWO’s, sz 10-12 October Caddis and a few hoppers/ants as well.  Hopper/Dropper in the mornings with BWO Perdigons, Jig PT’s, Rubberlegs, TJ Hookers and San Juan droppers.  When the fish start rising switch over to dries.  Streamer fishing in has been good and the cloudy days are really helping.  Black, White and Olive streamers big or small are getting some love.  Switch colors until you find what they like.

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