Summer is over!

The Bitterroot has seen some badly needed rain and cool temperatures over the last few days. The higher peaks have even seen some snow. This precip and cold nights should put an end to our fire season and local authorities have responded by lifting some fire restrictions. The air is cool , crisp, and smoke free. Like the weather the river and fishing has begun to change. May flies are the name of the game in fall with multiple hatches. Trico’s are emerging in the morning, afternoons bring on Hecubas, Mahoganies, BWO’s. On bright sunny days when there aren’t as many may flies , hopper dropper rigs can still catch you some fish. We are entering a time of great dry fly action which should last well into October. See ya on the river………….
