The springtime sharks are circling.
The Bitterroot River and Clark Fork River are both passable. It looks like the big ice-jams have broken up and the water looks great, albeit a bit low. There has been some fishing on lower Rock Creek, too. The Blackfoot River was still frozen across in a few spots as of Saturday. If you go this week try the usual zebra type midges, small p.t s, SJ worm. I’m surprised that some misguided soul hasn’t posted a picture of a “skwala”. Remember kids: a nemora is not a skwala.
The Missouri River has been fishing with the usual pink stuff and midges.
Barring a bizarre heat-wave like last June, it looks like we’ll have a little snow to supplement flows. The weather has been mild, but there is a significant cold snap headed our way. Hopefully there will be some measurable snow associated with it.
