  Blue ribbon fly fishing in Western Montana and Northern Idaho.  
River Report : CLARK FORK
So it is Sept 18th The smoke is gone and so is summer as rains have arrived. Bring your waders and expect to deal with variable weather. The fish are really sleeping in and we are getting on the water after ten and that is still early . The river flows are up to 3,000cfs and vis is four feet with the rains. The fish have shifted the bite to mid day and even later. The good news is they take small hoppers and a variety of new hatches like PMDs and Mahoganys all day once they wake up. So sleep in and then enjoy the day long activity on top. In the evening you can expect the fish to work tiny tricos so if you are ready in the evening with small black flies over still water jump right in with Tricos. River temps now right at 50 degrees and PMDs are back. Even getting some late day Mahogany Drake hatch. You do not have to pound the banks to find the fish. Nice to fish the good vis and see the rises to our flies. You can even trail a black ant which gets half of the strikes. Call us at the shop 406-382-0161 for a shuttle. .... Steve
