Steady Water Conditions is a Great Time to Fly Fish
By Matt Schauer

Lots of opportunity for great fly fishing now. Missouri River has great bwo and midge action in the afternoons. Cluster midge patterns are working for the midges-sometimes drop off a size 18 light bead headed zebra midge in black or purple.

Up by the Wolf Creek Dam just about anything in bright pink is working. Sizes 14 thru 20’s are working. Streamer fisherman are having fun with dull white streamers-retrieved with a slow jerky action.

Waters west of the divide that are fishing good to great are the Bitterroot and Rock Creek. You may catch the March brown hatch on either of these waters-if not the occasional fish is still sipping size 12 subtle Skwala dry flies. Nymphing on Rock Creek is good with a small brown Pat’s rubber leg. Looks like we will have steady water conditions for awhile-so the fishing this weekend should be very good to excellent.
