Hump Back Hen

The sun was out, the river is clearing, bugs are everywhere, but the fishing sucked. We fished the mainstem of the Flathead today and it sure looked great. 3+ feet of visibility, march browns and skwalas everywhere, and lots of great looking water to fish…..But not much happening. We fished for a couple hours and never saw a rising fish. Even with seam lines littered with skwalas and march browns nobody was looking. I did here the upper river had some decent dry fly fishing but we fished down low and that was not the case. Maybe tomorrow.

The flow continues to drop so we should have another couple days of fishable conditions. It’s supposed to be warmer tomorrow.

To salvage our day we stopped by our local sneak spot and yanked on some fat bows.
