Montana Fly Fishing Report

This is so AWESOME!   Missouri River fly fishing has been sick! Think pink! Find the slow water and fish deep-ish. The weather over there is tropical and it would be a great time to scratch the itch.  You can fish from the dam to Prewett with no trouble.  There are some ramp-ice issues at Pelican. Small, darker streamers fished slowly should turn out some fish, too. GO!   The Clark Fork and Bitterroot have been decent, but it’s still winter.  Small stone nymphs, sj worms, princes-You know, the usual stuff. We haven’t been on the ‘root, but we’ve heard some stuff.  It’s great that for the next month, while the water is super low, it will be getting pounded by bobber-jockeys. That should really help the dry fly fishing later on. Watch out for soft ground at some of the Bitterroot accesses. It’s so sad when those Tundras get bogged down to their axles. The good news is that you can Gopro/Youtube the tow truck extraction, with some catchy music and cute captions.  Hooray for Tundras and film festivals.  They’ve given the angling world so much!I guess I might have a touch of cabin fever. – Predator www.flyfishmissoula.com
