It's been a kinda crazy summer weather and flow wise. I tell folks count on 90's-100's July thru August... Not this year. First couple weeks in July we had some pretty solid rain. And cooler than average temps. Then just is things heated up and flows started to drop....read more
Well, it looked like we had a chance of water issues in June. The snow melted quick. But Just after that we get a cool summer with a good bit of rain. I don't ever remember a July with temps in the 70's and almost a daily shower or two. So. Thing are going pretty...read more
Well it's gotta melt some time.... And right now is the time. All the rivers have doubled in size the last couple of weeks. And the warm weather on tap will most likely keep it coming. The conditions right now are colored up and dangerous in a sense. Especially if...read more

Never have seen it before. But it's happening now. Salmonflies are still around and the spruce moth's are gonzo. River levels have finally leveled off to where they should be just about everywhere. Blackfoot has been fishing best from around 9 to about 12. And it...read more
We're about where we should be considering the snowpack for the year. In essence there has been 2 runoff's. Things had shaped up and looked good about 2 weeks ago. Then the rain/monsoon came and postponed things. So depending on the stretch you pick things can be...read more
Thing's are looking pretty good on almost all the rivers. The Blackfoot has turned Glacier Green with about 2 feet of Vis. The goldens are thick and some salmon flies also if you check the willows. good time for a double nymph rig, always looking for that afternoon...read more
