Probably the best conditions we've had in a long time for end of the first week in August. Flows are still pretty good and no restrictions! Pretty much hopper's and Moth's for the fish. Some day's/stretches the moth's are there and some their not?? hard to say why...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

Conditions could. And have been much worse. Water levels are low on the Bitterroot. But depending on where you go you still have some pretty good options. There's a world of difference between, say the West Fork at 3PM and the Clark fork at noon. about 12 degrees. So...read more
A nice break this week on the daytime highs. And a decent shower last night helps to cool things down of a bit. With a lot of talk about restrictions things appear to be holding in there. Flows are still pretty good, especially compared to last year. And depending on...read more
Things are about where they should be. Clark Fork is still a little off color. But is actually fishing pretty damn good sub-surface. Turds, Prince's is about all you really need. Blackfoot is starting to get a much needed break after being HAMMERED! If you do decided...read more
