Western Montana Fishing Report by the Mountain Man 9.16.16
The fishing in Western Montana has been good to excellent in the past week. Hopper patterns, October caddis, and small to medium droppers have been producing a lot of nice fish on most area waters.
The dry fly fishing seems to be better from about 1pm to 5 or 6 pm. The Bitterroot has been having the best actual hatches-but the Blackfoot is fishing just as good with attractor flies and small streamers.
For those of you that love to catch whitefish and smoke them-prince nymphs seem to be the main producer. With most people thinking of hunting now-it is a great time to get out there and have very good fishing with very little company.
