Fishing Report Update 6/16/2021
Greetings, from the dry fly capital of the country! For up to the minute river reports stop by the shop and chat with one of the folks behind the counter, they're dialed on the day to day changes. The middle of June is a great time to be on the Bitterroot river in Western Montana. Salmon flies, Golden Stones, Drakes and more have been appearing daily on your favorite stretch of the river. The nymphing game has been a good producer for those anglers who don't want to throw a dry fly, perdigons, PT's, stones and worms are your best bet for the hungry fish. There's been a heavy concentration of anglers on the upper portion of the main stem as well as the forks, but some of the guide's have been venturing down lower with a mixed bag of results. Any day now you will see better dry fly fishing river wide. The flows are dropping quickly so changes in the river channel will be evident. BE CAREFUL!
