Fishing Tip / Report from The King Fisher Fly Shop

The flow near town is sitting just above 4500cfs and slowly leveled off. Be ready for a big push of water over the next couple days. The cooler nights have the rivers hanging on, but that doesn’t look like that will continue. Big heat wave coming at the end of the week. The Bitteroot is going to get big. The main stem is much more boater friendly right now with the higher flows, but the back and side channels are giving pretty decent options to the wade fisherman. Bring some big D&D cripples, purple hazes, march browns, grey drakes, and low riding skwala patterns just in case. When the flows start to come up like they are, the fish tend to seek refuge in back channels and towards the banks. So, keep your rigs close to the shoreline. If your going to fish the back channels be sure that they are actual back channels and not a tributary. The tributaries are still closed till the 3rd Saturday in May.

HATCHES/Flies: midges, baetis, March browns, grey drakes, skwalas
