Winter is a Hangin’ On

After a few days of warm weather, winter is returning to the Bitterroot. Warm days in the 50’s are giving way to rain and snow in the valley with blizzard conditions in the mountains. Snow pack is sitting at 108 % and should continue to climb in the next week with the projected snow. A few fly fishers were out on the Bitterroot trying to shake off cabin fever.  Some fish were caught on streamers and nymphs but it is too early for any decent dry fly action. We are about a month away from the Skwala hatch. Consistent dry fly fishing should begin by mid March and last until runoff begins in late April. Its time to book your spring trip. See ya on the river……….
