Fishing Tip / Report from The King Fisher Fly Shop

The Bitteroot is on the rise from the rain and warm weather, but is still fishing really well. Some bigger fish have been giving it up over the last few days. Full blown skwala party is going on and even some March browns and baetis are joining in. The bump in flows will start pushing fish into the banks and slower paced water. Don’t be afraid to work the walking pace water and fish it thoroughly. Fish will start to get pretty concentrated as the water goes up. Focus on working side channels too. Remember to have long drifts with more mending rather that picking up and recasting. Streamer fishing has also picked up in the last week or so. Yellow and brown or yellow and olive have been our most productive colors. Pounding the banks has been the way to go.

March brown nymphs, San Juans, and skwala nymphs have been the ticket for subsurface. Double dutch bugs, flush floater skwalas, royal chubbies, Amy’s ants in olive, and el caminos are all good choices for skwalas. Aztec streamers, sparkle minnows, bighorn buggers, sculpzillas, sex dungeons, and masked avengers have been moving fish really well.
