Fishing Tip / Report from The King Fisher Fly Shop

Snow, lots of snow! Some of the boat ramps are pretty “iffy”. A handful of warm days will do wonders on The Bitterroot. Plus, the river is running pretty low. 500 cfs at Bell Crossing today, which is way below the historical average. Cold nights are saving us from flooding, luckily. Bring snow shoes if you can’t stand another weekend of tying flies inside!. We have seen Skwala adults here and there. For top water patterns use a rogue Skwala, bullet head Skwala, Amy’s ant, Flush Floater, or a Double Dutch Bug. The March browns should start showing up as well. Pheasant tail parachutes, D&D cripples, and Flick’s March brown are all good choices. It’ll take till mid afternoon for it to warm up. Start out fishing sub surface. Underneath use pheasant tails, olive double beaded stones, epoxy back March brown nymphs, Pat’s rubber legs, little black Sloan’s, and micro stones.

HATCHES/Flies: Midges, March Browns, BWO, Skwalas
