July 2nd Fishing Report
West Fork of the Bitterroot: 964 CFS. Fishing on the West Fork has been decent. A lot of water for this time of year has made wade fishing difficult, but the boat anglers have been successful with Salmon Flies, Golden Stones, Drakes and PMDs.
Upper Bitterroot River: 3320 CFS. Flows have stabilized but remain above average for this time of year. Wade fishing is almost non existent at this level, but the float anglers have been successful with dries, droppers and nymph rigs. Look for PMD's, Small Golden Stones and Drakes to be your best bet for surface action. A worm, stonefly nymph or tungsten beaded anything will usually get the job done underneath.
Lower Bitterroot River: 7220 CFS. As with the rest of the river flows have stabilized. Dry dropper or nymph rig will be your best option. A Golden with a worm or Tung Bead PT is hard to beat down here. Look for cloudy days to be better dry fly fishing with PMD's and Drake patterns.
BE SAFE OUT THERE. The river is moving fast. As the flows drop new obstacles will develop and become problematic. Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are open everyday from 7:30a - 6:00p.
