Fly Tying Nights are back! February 15 & 22 at 6:30 here at the shop. Free fly tying night.
Rain is causing the river to rise pretty quickly. Once the rain stops, give it a day or so to drop before the fishing picks up.
Lots of snow and ice up here. There are definitely open sections to fish, but there are better options like the Mo or even the Bitterroot.
Clark Fork River
Rain the last couple of days has blown out the river. Time to tie flies and hope the rain stops. Give it a day or two after the rain stops to get back out on the Clarkfork.
Missouri River at Holter Dam
Typical winter stuff is the name of the game with pink being the color to go with… Amexs, Czechs, Lightning Bugs, Scuds, Ray Charles and Sow Bugs. People are really getting into the swinging for fish over there. It’s a text book river for two handed fishing and the fish seem to be into it too. Black Leech patterns are the way to go in the winter, but it’s streamer fishing and being willing to change up colors will help you figure out the bite.
Rock Creek is rising at a good clip because of rain and a bit of low elevation snow melt. Once the rain stops it shouldn’t take to long to shape up to fishable levels.
