One of the prettiest rivers on the planet! The river carves its way through the magnificent Bitterroot valley, just south of Missoula. It may be one of the most diverse fly fishing rivers in western Montana. Browns, rainbows and cutthroats abound and all can be taken readily on dry flies. At Renegade Fly Fishing Outfitters, we want you to experience this unique fly fishing adventure. Make fly fishing the Bitterroot River one of your bucket list adventures, and allow us to make it unforgettable! Our fly fishing guides are permitted by the U.S. Forest Service to operate on the Bitterroot National Forest
Key Hatches & Dates on the Bitterroot River:
SKWALAS/MARCH BROWNS (mid March-April)
This hatch is quickly becoming a favorite among fly fisherman that are in the know. Skwala stones are big and the trout that eat them are big,too. This is the best time of year to catch a trophy brown on a dry. Book early because this window fills up fast.
GOLDEN STONES/GREEN DRAKES (mid June-July)
Runoff ends in western Montana about this time and the wild trout are on the prowl. Big stones and huge mayflies blanket the river and the fishing can be great. Add some nice weather and the recipe for a great Missoula fly fishing vacation is complete.
The trout sense the coming winter and feed accordingly.
