West Fork Bitterroot River Fishing Report

Fishing Rating:


Recent releases from the Dam have shut down fishing for a day or two.  It’s a nymphing  or streamer proposition right now.  Think stoneflies, and think big ones.  Salmonfly nymphs should be crawling around for their annual migration.  Big fish love eating big nymphs, so come prepared.  We like dark Rubberlegs, Bitch Creeks, and Yuks.  Trail a red or pink San Juan behind it.  If you’re not in the mood to nymph, chuck some bright colored streamers into the softer pockets.  Everything will happen within a few feet of the bank, as the fish are looking for softer water with cover.  As flows become more stable coming into June, the fishing will become dynamite!
