Fishing Report + Rating


October 22, 2021

The Blackfoot is fishing good right now and there are some dry fly opportunities still on it in the afternoons.  Most of the October Caddis are gone, but if you skate one around you’ll still get eats.  Mainly there are BWO’s out in a sz 18-20.  Para-Wulffs, Extended Bodies, Tilt Wings, CDC Duns and Flash Cripples will get those afternoon sippers to eat.  Nymphing BWO nymphs like Hot Spot Baetis, Olive Spanish Bullets, Jig PT’s as well as Rubberlegs, San Juans and Red Copper Johns are another good options.  The whitefish bite is on so just a heads up.  Streamer fishing continues to get better with the clouds out right now.  Zonkers, Zirdles, Sparkle Minnows, JJ Specials, Autumn Splendors, Dungeons, Heisenbergs and Crazy Charlies…(Just wanted to see if anyone reads to the end! lol)

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