Skwala, finally!

With the prolonged winter season this year I was beginning to wonder if Skwalas would ever appear on the Bitterroot. Well, they’re here and hatching well, albeit about a month behind the normal schedule.  Morning fishing is pretty slow, nonexistent some days, but our warmer afternoons are bringing out piles of bugs and the fish are happily looking up to eat a well drifted imitation.  Streamers have they’re place as well if you are skilled with the bigger rods and the quick hand work that this style of fishing demands.
