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.

We fly fish many of Montana’s famous rivers and streams, including the Blackfoot, Bitterroot, Clark Fork, Missouri Rivers, Rock Creek, and many more. If there is a river or stream you want to fish in Montana, we can get you there and help you fish!
