Warm Days Are Bringing More Anglers To Western Montana Rivers
By Toby Trigger


A huge upswing in angling activity has been seen on the Bitterroot River and reports of excellent angling in other rivers west of the divide have been trickling in.  While hatches are triggered primarily by photo-periodism  (length of daylight) the warm temperatures have created the opportunity for some bug activity.

Anglers willing to stand in the river and allow the warm sun shine to reflect off the water onto their faces with a rod in hand have been rewarded by using nymph and worm patterns.  Reports of  brown trout and cuttbows being taken on plugs and streamers have been validated by a member of the Captains crew as well.
