Fishing Report: July 1, 2010

The Bitterroot is flowing slightly above average but has dropped quite a bit in the last week. Salmon flies are about done on the West Fork but a few fish will eat a well presented imitation. Not only are the East and West Forks fishing but the entire river from Darby down to Missoula is coming into shape.This is a time of abundant and diverse hatches. Golden Stones, Green & Gray Drakes, PMD’s and Caddis can be found emerging on the entire river. Thanks to all the rain we had in May and June, July should be a great month for fly fishing. See ya on the river.
