cfThe MT FWP has lifted our Hoot Owl restrictions but hot weather and warm water are still looming. You can see from the above graph that temps are back in the critical zone for the Clark Fork and Blackfoot in the afternoons. The next several days are forecasted in the 90’s so that won’t help. It looks like some cool weather and moisture in the near future but we should probably live by the Hoot Owl until things cool down a bit. This past week we had great fishing on the Clark Fork and Blackfoot as the water temps were in the low 60’s for almost a week. We hope to see more of this soon with fall approaching.  The fishing in the morning should remain solid for now. The Flathead is enjoying cold water and good all day dry fly fishing so we have been focusing most of our efforts there. We just put up a new water temp graphs toggle on our River Graphs page that has all the temp gauges for our rivers in one spot to help he keep tabs on the current conditions.
