Blackfoot River at Bonner

Daily River Report

August 22, 2014

This rain will only help keep the river at good flows.  Not sure if it will do anything to the clarity of the water just yet.  It all depends on how much rain we get.  As far as fishing goes this weekend will be great streamer weather.  So tie on a Sparkle Minnow, Sheila Sculpin, Dungeon or Crystal Bugger and hit the banks and mid-river structure.  Hopper/Attractor fishing will be your other option.  A Chubby with a stonefly dropper is a great prospecting bug.  Not many hatches going on, but this weather could get some PMD's and BWO's going.  A P-Haze or Adams will get eaten if mayflies come out. 
We have the new Winston BIII-SX in stock!  It's a great fast action rod that is the perfect rod for the Blackfoot!
