** Hoot Owl restrictions are in play starting 8/3 from Veterans Bridge (Hamilton) downstream till the confluence of The Clark Fork**
More of the same with the lower river near Missoula consistently running temperatures in the danger zone while the upper Bitterroot continues to be some of the coldest water in the area. Hitting the river early using spruce moths, PMD’s, and hoppers is the way to go. Some tricos have been spotted, but not a ton out yet. Remember to be off the river by 2 if you plan on fishing the lower and middle river.
HATCHES/Flies: Caddis, BWOs, Golden Stones, Baetis, PMDs, yellow sallies
