Blackfoot Fishing Report – 7/19

 

The Blackfoot is running 1080 cfs this morning, which is below the historical average for this time of year. Water temps hit 67 degrees yesterday. The cool nights are helping big time! For now, water temps on the Blackfoot are staying in safe range, but things are warm enough to keep the midday fishing less than stellar. Focusing on the early mornings and hitting the water with PMDs, spruce moths, hoppers, and goldens right out of the chute is a good plan. Pheasant tails or something similar is a nearly sure thing on the Blackfoot these days. Avoid the lower river unless you plan on being on the water at first light and hitting your destination take-out about noon to avoid the splash and giggle crowd.
