The Bitterroot is very low and really great for wade fishermen. You can still float, but it’s boney and you’ll do some scraping. The fishing has been good and we are seeing Trico’s, Mahoganies, BWO’s and Hecubas, as well as Hoppers, Ants and Beetles. It’s fall dry fly time! The sun is coming back out later this week which will mean tougher fishing conditions in low clear water, but they’re still looking up. Trico’s are the toughest game in town and a sz 18-22 Dun or Spinner with light tippet and a drag free drift are a must. Mahoganies are a sz 14-16 and a CDC Dun, Tilt Wing Dun or Copper Haze is a good bet. BWO’s are a sz 18 and an Adams, P-Haze or Flash Cripple has been good. Hopper/Dropper in the afternoon will get fish when they aren’t coming up. Streamer fishing has been so so, but should get better as the water continues to cool off. Let’s hope for more clouds too.
