Blackfoot River Fishing Report – 8/12




The Blackfoot has displayed some really stellar fishing through the hot weather. Spruce moths and hoppers have been great, and dropping nymphs off either of those two is good. For dries use big elk hair caddis, spruce moth patterns, hoppers, Chernobyls, Stimulators, Rogue stones, half downs, bullet heads, parachute adams, and purple hazes. For nymphs use Pat’s rubber legs, princes, double beaded stones, micro stones, San Juan worms and batman nymphs. For streamers use big dark double bunnies, sculpzillas, mouthwashes, standard buggers, sparkle minnows and dark articulated patterns.
