This is the time of year for the wade fisherman! You can wade very effectively now and will be able to throughout the rest of the summer/fall. It's attractor time and P-Hazes, Royal Wulff's, Stimi's, Parachute Adams and Bugmeisters are all very effective. Green Drake Cripples are still catching fish as well as Bitterroot Stones.
Try a Patagonia Stormfront Hip Pack on the West Fork. Our favorite for wade fishing!
