Fishing restrictions lifted.

Last week FWP lifted the Hoot Owl restrictions on the Bitterroot, Blackfoot and Clark Fork. Shorter days and cooler nights have water temps down to safe levels for trout… Fishing is starting to shift over with the cooler temps as well.. Terrestrials such as hoppers and ants are bringing fish up but we are also beginning to see the start of the early fall hatches. Tricos are emerging in good numbers on the entire Bitterroot and the Fall Drake or Hecubas are coming off as well. Tricos are getting fish in the mornings and by mid day switch over to Hecubacs and hoppers to get it done… See ya on the river…..
