Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a fun holiday season and the New Year is off to a great start. Not much action to report on Bitterroot river fly fishing.. We have had cold temperatures over the past week and a fair amount of ice has begun to build on the river. There is still some open water on the lower river if you are interested in trying your luck. Your best bet will be fishing nymphs low and slow in the slower runs.. Dress warm and be prepared to have your guides ice up every few casts. The Bitterroot snowpack as of January 19th is about 90%. A bit below average but nothing we can’t make up with a few good storms. The snowpack builds until April so there is plenty of time left and things can change quickly. Check my site for updates on conditions.. Don’t forget the Skwala hatch is less then 2 months away………….. Eddie
