Here’s the latest from Grizzly Hackle for the West Fork of the Bitterroot River.  They scored it a 4/5:

The Bitterroot continues to fish well this fall.  The bright sun has made it tougher, but we are still seeing Trico’s, Mahoganies and a few BWO’s are around.  Have your fall mayfly box ready to go with all sizes from Trico’s (20-22) to Mahoganies (14-16) and BWO’s (18-20).  Terrestrials like Hoppers, Ants and Beetles are still a great option in the afternoons if you aren’t seeing Mayflies.  Hopper/Dropper rigs with BWO or Mahogany nymphs or San Juans are another good way to get into fish.  Streamer fishing will be tough in the sun, but if you stick with it you can still get a bruiser.  Olive/Gold, White/Gold or Black are good options on the Root.

1/2 off Friday’s are still happening, every Friday all year long. (1/2 off your first dozen dries or nymphs)
