Blackfoot River Fishing Report – 8/2



With good temperatures and flows, the Blackfoot has continued to fish really well. At this point in the summer, it would take the MVP title for the season. Don’t expect to be alone out here, though. Everyone wants to see what the hype is about. 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.
