Water flows on the Bitterroot are pretty high and a few feet of clarity. Fishing has been good. But mostly sub-surface. It's not really that there isn't any bugs though... Plenty of neumoras and fair amount of skwalas. Things should continue to improve as levels drop....

If you are gonna fish...ask for Doug. Great guy, great sense of humor, and a great teacher. He put us in the very best spots and was teaching along the way. The best guide I have ever had! Cheers.
