Run Up to Runoff

Our rivers in SW Montana are starting to crank up quite a bit making for some fun and challenging fishing. Actually, the challenging aspect lies more on the guides’ shoulders as we row like hell to slow the boats down so our anglers can properly fish the sweet spots. The fishing is pretty straightforward: a variety of nymphs under a bobber will get the job done with the occasional dry fly opportunity in the right water.  

Our water clarity on the Bitterroot has been remarkable this runoff season with clear fishable water throughout the rise. Cold spells have tamed the beast just before all hell breaks loose from warm weather, allowing us to run our float trips confident and successful for our anglers.  And as I pointed out in my last post, other guides and fishermen are staying home waiting for the water to subside, giving us countless miles of river all to ourselves. Come and get after it with our veteran guides before the full swing of the season, and let us show you the fishing opportunities waiting for you here on the Bitterroot river.
