Hot weather push into midweek then we will see a big cool down towards the weekend!
BEST TECHNIQUES – Run a dry stone to a stone or mayfly dropper, not too deep, and that’ll do the trick through the whole system. I’d set your dropper to 3-4′ and fish 3X to your bigger dries.
Fishing higher in the river system and feeder creeks, no need to fish too deep.
On smaller creeks, a classic Purple Haze in a size 12-16 should do the trick.
OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK – Things are slowly warming back up and with that water temps are as well.
Get it while you can! Who knows what Mother Nature has in store for us next!
That said, we are still encouraging folks to get out early just to keep that habit rolling.
Hopper fishing has been pretty darn good on the entire river.
They are looking up for small mayflies (tricos these days) so be on the lookout for noses.
Be sure to call the shop in Missoula to get up to the minute recommendations…Blackfoot River Outfitters 406-542-7411.
