bitterroot northern pike

This Spring has been up and down as far as weather goes.  It was super cold initially in March.  April provided some really good skwala and mayfly dry fly fishing on the Bitterroot and the lower Clark Fork.  We got warm quickly though and have had some big water swings also related to rain that forced us to head over the continental divide and fish the Missouri near Wolf Creek.  In late April things mellowed and we were able to fish the Bitterroot and Clark Fork again.

Now we’re headed into mid May where we normally are on the Missouri river.  I’m guiding there and hopefully on the Blackfoot when it falls into shape nearing the end of Spring runoff.  We’ve had a couple of really good northern pike days on the lower bitterroot lately, pike are a blast on a fly rod, they feel like they will snap your #9 weight.

We have some availability for 2024 still, my schedule is pretty much booked personally but we have Alex, Alex, Josh, James, and a couple other awesome guides that would love to get you on our rivers with bent fly rods.

Take care and we hope to hear from you.
