Winter 2011

Ice is forming on the edges of the river as winter’s cold temps are taking hold of the Bitterroot. Most fly fishers have moved on to hunting, skiing, or any number of the various winter activities Montana has to offer.. While there is snow in the mountains, snow levels are still a bit below average for this time of year. The long term forecast is another La Nina for the northwest which equates to colder wetter weather than average. this pattern has yet to materialize but it is early.. I will post more fishing reports after the new year and give updates of the snow pack levels. If you must fish , nymphs and streamers fished slow and deep should get you a few fish. As for me, I’ll see ya on the slopes….. Happy Holidays!
