Blackfoot River at Bonner

Daily River Report

March 27, 2015

The Blackfoot has continued to drop all week and is a great option if you don't mind fishing sub-surface with nymphs and streamers.  Stick with big Stonefly nymphs and San Jaun worms.  Nymphing Zonkers and Sparkle Minnows is another great option in this high water and can be very rewarding.  Fish the inside bends and the slow foam lines/tailouts.  Stripping streamers is another option if you want to swing for the fences.  Sparkle Minnows, Silvey's Sculpins, Dungeons, Skiddish Smolts, Kreelex and Beldar Rubberlegs.
 
We have the new Winston BIII-SX in stock!  It's a great fast action rod that is the perfect rod for the Blackfoot!
