All the graphs around the state pretty much look like this one. The Flathead and Upper Swan are really close. Maybe even today. You should think about giving it a try. Stonefly nymphs with a SJW trailer per usual or a bugger on a tip. Same old same old. Or your quadruple articulated sparkly butt monkey intruder dungeon minnow….whatever. Buggers are sure more pleasant to cast and catch plenty. When it warms up there should be some bugs out on the Flathead. Maybe some Caddis, maybe some March browns, maybe a few little spring stones. If the flows continue to drop it’s going to get interesting.
