Attention Anglers–Here’s the Mountain Man’s Fishing Report (10.20.16)
Bitterroot River, Rock Creek and Missouri River anglers–here’s a report
Still some good fishing out there. Despite high waters in western Montana-fishing reports have been pretty good especially on the Bitterroot and Rock Creek. October caddis, mahogany duns, and some bwo’s are coming out and anglers have been using their favorite patterns to get the fish. As expected, the best time of day is about 2 to 5 pm.
The Missouri river has been very good fishing below Holter Lake to Craig area. Some dry action-but mostly nymphing with #18-20 sparsely tied darker flies. Streamer fishing is spotty so far and as of last week no great reports-should be starting soon though. Weather has been fair on Missouri and if you can stand the wind this is the best place to go for lots of action right now.
