This weekend doesn’t look too bad as far as weather goes. Fishing this week has still been pretty slow with only the afternoon to really get out and fish. Nymphing is the way to go with San Juans, Eggs, Double Bead Stones, Rubberlegs, PT’s and Lightning Bugs. We should see the weather get warmer at the end of next week. Keeping our fingers crossed.
Still cold and snowy up here. Our fly tying selection continues to grow. Stop in the shop and grab some materials!
Clark Fork River
The weekend looks a bit warmer, but there is still plenty of bank ice, so be careful if you get out. Nymphing walking speed water with San Juans, Eggs, PT’s, Lightning Bugs and Double Bead Stones. The weather should warm up at the end of next week and make fishing much better.
Missouri River at Holter Dam
Definitely the best option right now. The water temp is cold, but fish will eat the nymph. Your typical winter fare is all you need (pink stuff) Amex, Czech, Scuds, Ray Charles and of course Zebra midges. Not much for dry fly action yet, besides seeing a few here and there. We should see warmer temps soon and the fishing will only get better.
Lots of snow and ice still up here, but there is open water to fish. Although, we haven’t had any great reports that would make you drop everything and head up the Creek. If you go stick to nymphing slower speed water. San Juans, Eggs, Double Bead Stones and Zebra Midges.
