Morning trico fishing on the Blackfoot has been good. Things are shutting down a little bit, at least on top, during the primary daylight hours, but will kick back into gear during the evenings. For dries use tricos, big PMDs, BWOs, elk hair caddis, hoppers, Chernobyls, Stimulators, half downs, bullet heads, parachute adams, and purple hazes. For nymphs use Pat’s rubber legs, princes, double beaded stones, micro stones, beer head baetis, San Juan worms and batman nymphs. For streamers use big dark double bunnies, sculpzillas, mouthwashes, standard buggers, sparkle minnows and dark articulated patterns.
