Bitteroot Fishing Report – 9/28


The entire river has been fishing well as of late and that includes the lower river in sunny conditions. Mostly a mahogany and baetis deal, which is nice since it keeps the guesswork to a minimum. You may have to experiment day to day to figure out which mahogany pattern they want the most, but by and large, they’re on the mahoganies. You can always put a baetis dry or nymph dropper off the back if you think they’re switching up pod to pod. The lower river (below Florence) has been less consistent on top but on the days it hasn’t been happening, small black streamers have been VERY effective rain or shine.
