3/5 Okay

The Bitterroot River is finally recovering from the runoff of late May. The lower ends of the river are still dirty and will need some more time before they make for proper fishing. The upper ends of the river, however, are fishable, and Nymphs are the name of the game.

If you're ready to get out there and start fishing, make sure you pickup a fishing license! Check out our information on getting a fishing license online, https://guide-x.io/blog/montana-fishing-license-cost-2021. Book a trip with us at https://guide-x.io.

Current Hatches:
