The Bitterroot continues to drop but water levels are still above normal… The river is in the best shape we have seen in years, flows are up and water temperatures are low enough to keep trout happy… The major hatches of early summer have begun to drop off and we are entering a time when terrestrial bugs become an important part of the trouts diet. PMD’s are still emerging in the morning and some gray drakes are on the water  throughout the day. Afternoon in the heat of the day and bright sun has the fish hunkering down in the deeper holes.. Large attractors and hopper patterns can bring up a good fish and droppers are getting the fish that won’t rise mid day. Terrestrial patterns to fish are , grass hoppers, beetles, ants and spruce moths. … See ya on the river……….
