West Fork of The Bitterroot River

Daily River Report

April 09, 2014

This is the best local option as our rivers have begun to come way up.  Until they stabalize this is the place to be.  Right now it's mainly a subsurface thing with very few fishing coming up for dries.  Your typical spring bugs are on the menu.  Double Bead Stones, Terminator Stones, Rubberlegs, Princes, PT's, San Jauns and Zonkers all under an indicator.  Streamer fishing is an option, but the water is still very cold and you won't get much of a chase.  Dead drifting and slow twitching on the insides of bends and slow tailouts is the way to go.  

Please call for up-to-the-minute reports. 406-721-8996  

Try a Patagonia Stormfront Hip Pack on the West Fork.  Our favorite for wade fishing!
