We’ve had a colder than normal spring with a bunch of moisture. This is great for our rivers state-wide as we are now well above average snow-pack for the coming summer. The cold weather has had the rivers all fishing well during what is normally high water run-off season. It’s made for a great spring! The Flathead, Clark Fork, and Blackfoot have all been fish-able recently with the cold weather and low flows. That is all over now as the snow is finally melting and making it’s way down hill. The rivers are all going to the moon for now. We don’t really know how all the snow will come out of the hills at this point. Maybe it will be another really hot dry June and it will all come out in a few weeks? Hopefully we’ll have a cool summer and it will trickle out all season giving us some great hopper fishing. Mother nature holds the cards…

For now its more Missouri River and local still-water fishing as we wait. The Missouri has been fishing really well with just about whatever discipline you want to practice. Nymphs, dry flies, dry/dropper, Streamer? Pick your poison, it’s all good. The still-water fishing has also been very good depending on the lake you choose. Bass and pike fishing has been decent as well and should ramp up as we see some warm weather.

It’s going to be another busy year so make plans accordingly. Give us a call if you need some assistance planning your trip.
