It never ceases to amaze me how few folks we see on the rivers fishing in mid June. A little recap of my last few days of guiding to prove my point: upper Bitterroot – one boat, middle Bitterroot one boat (two guides on day off), upper Blackfoot – no anglers, lower Rock Creek- three wade anglers, upper Bitterroot – one boat, upper Rock Creek - one boat, upper Blackfoot - no anglers, upper Blackfoot – one boat, lower Clark Fork - no anglers, upper Rock Creek – three waders one boat. Wow, that is a bunch of driving, but more importantly in 10days on the water we only noticed 6 other boats and 6 wading anglers! Where is everybody?
Admittedly, we haven’t had very good dry fly fishing but for those willing to swing a bunny and a bead on the Foot, drop a worm below a chubby on the Root, double down with a prince on the Clark or fish a dropper tight to the bank on the Rock… expect some exceptional fishing in both numbers and size. Get out there!Tweet
