Bitterroot Snowpack Hits 100%

After running below normal for most of the winter the Bitterroot snowpack finally has bumped up to 100% of normal. Recent storms off the Pacific have brought heavy mountain snow and valley rain to western Montana. There is still snow and ice on the valley floor but a recent warm spell is breaking up river ice and opening up the river… Not many fishing opportunities currently but the Skwala hatch is only 4-6 weeks away. As the weather warms fish should start moving and looking to bulk up on the spring stoneflies.
