Fishing Report + Rating


September 16, 2020

The Blackfoot continues to fish well this week.  Smoke is making for artificial cloud cover which the fish like.  Hopper/Dropper fishing has still been the best way to get into fish.  A few Trico’s are out in spots and is happening later in the morning/afternoon as the night temps are getting colder.  Have a few at the ready for those spots that they are coming off.  A sz 18 P-Haze or Adams with a Trico Spinner or dun off the back will help you track your trico better.  Hoppers in Tan, Pink or Yellow with a San Juan, Jig Nymph, Rubberlegs or Copper John off the back.  Streamer fishing is a great option with the smoke around covering up the sun.  Mini-Dungeons, Sparkle Minnows, Smoke N Mirrors, Zonkers and JJ Specials twitched behind boulders and the deeper runs will get some nice fish to the net right now.

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.
