Fishing Tip / Report from The King Fisher Fly Shop

The Bitteroot has leveled off and is starting to fish better everyday. The flows should stay pretty stable as long as the temps stay reasonably cool and we don’t get a substantial amount of rain. The flow just above town is just under 1510 cfs and the clarity is pretty good. Skwalas have been out and about, but don’t count on getting a fish every cast. Focus on working side channels and walking pace water. Remember to have long drifts with more mending rather that picking up and recasting.

double dutch bugs, flush floater skwalas, royal chubbies, Amy’s ants in olive, and foamulators are all good choices for skwalas. Underneath use pheasant tails, mighty mays, San Juan worms, amber princes, Pat’s rubber legs, jigstones, and hare’s ear nymphs. Streamers have been working well in the down time between hatches with mojo minnows, sparkle minnows, bighorn buggers, sculpzillas, and sex dungeons. The streamers have been fishing best deep in the column. Get out and enjoy the weather!
