Blackfoot River Fishing Report

Fishing Report + Rating


October 20, 2019

The Blackfoot is still fishing well.  It’s colder up here so we aren’t seeing as many bugs as other rivers, but they’re is still an afternoon hatch of BWO’s with a sz 18-20 Tilt Wing, Flash Cripple, P-Haze or Para-Wulff that is doing the trick.  Other than that you are mainly fishing sub-surface with nymphs or streamers.  Nymphing Rubberlegs, October Caddis Nymphs, San Juans, Eggs, Perdigons, Pyscho Mays and Jig PT’s.  Streamer fishing has been very good with Black, Olive or White getting the most love.  Dungeons, Boogieman’s, JJ Specials, Silvey’s Sculpin, Strolis’ Masked Avenger and Smoke n Mirrors.

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.
