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
Blackfoot gets better everyday. Clarity is about 2-3 feet glacier green. Salmonflies still thick around Russell Gates and above. Big fish eating them but not always consistent. If their not taking on top go sub with a streamer or a nymph/worm. Seems to be a time frame...read more
Conditions are not what they are last weekend but much better than they were last Tuesday. Some record rain south and east... well pretty much everywhere, threw a monkey wrench in the local rivers. On the West fork, the New Perez was spitting mud and had the midway...read more

Looks like spring's made it. Time for the big thaw. Things have started to fish pretty good, but conditions will vary from day to day. Were getting rain down low, and still getting some good snow up high. Continues to look like a great summer is in store. This runoff...read more
Were well into the new year out here in Missoula. Getting record snowfalls in the area which is good no matter how you look at it. We could have a quick warm up, and the runoff could be done again in mid June. But it's also possible that we could have a wet spring and...read more
Past week conditions have been a lot wetter and cooler. Some river's have slowed a bit due to water temps (Blackfoot) and some have suffered a little due to clarity (Clark Fork). You can still catch fish but the window and bug activity have diminished some. The...read more
