The Famous Skwala Stonefly

The Bitterroot pumped fish out the past four days. The last push of water has settled and the river is looking great. There has actually been more March browns than skwalas but the fish have still been eating the skwala foam stuff well. The afternoons are good enough to clip the dropper and fish the single dry. The next several days are going to be GOOOOOOD.

The cold nights are keeping the flows in check and with highs in low fifties the March browns will intensify. You can blind fish the big bug until the afternoon mayflies get going.  

There is still a TON of low level snow so you better get out there and get it now…….it’s going to RAGE soon.

there's snow in them there hills....

Nice cuttbow on a skwala dry
