Blackfoot River Fishing Report + Rating
February 20, 2024
The Blackfoot is fishable in many spots, but there’s still plenty of ice out there. Be careful if you go and watch your step. Sub-surface is the way to go right now, if you go. Nymphing will be the best way to get into fish. Focus on slower inside bends and drop offs. Double Bead Stones, TJ Hookers, Perdigons, Jig Princes, Jig PT’s and San Juans. Slow and deep streamer fishing could get you some big fish. Fish won’t chase streamers very far, so slow down and get down to their level. Chicago Overcoats, Sparkle Minnows, Lil Kim’s, Mini-Dungeons and Silvey’s Sculpin.
1/2 off Friday’s are still happening, every Friday all year long. (1/2 off your first dozen dries or nymphs)

SWE is an acronym for Snow Water Equivalent, signifying the quantity of liquid water present in snow. Essentially, if you were to take a certain snow depth and melt it, the resulting water height would be representative of the SWE. This is how we can predict river flows and water levels for fishing season.
