The summer is in mid swing and our rivers are holding out big time this year for us. Still way up above historical average on water flows, the Bitterroot continues to fish excellent even with our high temps during the midday times.
Recently, I fished with a good friend for a three day adventure, chasing fish up and down the Bitterroot system. From the West Fork up high to downstream right around Hamilton, we found lots of great fishing with dries, and really any other method of fly fishing for that matter. Get that bug on the right drift and keep it there, they’ll find it.
For our last outing, we invited the boys to tag along and get their first taste of Montana fly fishing with Dad. Great fishing, a major log jam portage, lunch on a sand bar, and a rendevous with the girls later in the day added up to a superb adventure on the river. Thanks to the Jacobs family for another year of fishing and family in the Bitterroot Valley. See you next year.
