Early Season Bitterroot

We’ve survived another winter!  Well, almost. Our cold season has held on longer than I have seen in many years. Ice and snow drifts are still lining the banks of the Bitterroot River, and we haven’t seen any Skwala stones to speak of, but the trout are still right where they should be.  Definitely not looking up for a dry fly, but there is lots of fun to be had under the surface on nymphs.  The lower river is where it’s at right now, search out slower runs with proper depth and slight current and you will find the trout!
