Daily River Report

October 22, 2014

It's getting colder up here at nights and the hatches are slowing down, but we are still seeing good hatches of BWO's and Mahoganies in the afternoons.  October Caddis are still getting fish to come up to the surface as well, even though we aren't seeing very many of them on the water.  Streamer fishing is really starting to turn on as the fish get aggresive to pack on calories before winter hits.  Gold/Olive and Olive/White flies have been our go to colors.  Also nymphing zonkers and a lightning bugs has been doing some damage.
We have the new Winston BIII-SX in stock!  It's a great fast action rod that is the perfect rod for the Blackfoot!
