Water Levels Running High at the Blackfoot

Capt. Colin McLean

Blackfoot River - Freshwater Fishing Report

River Score:

Click to Enlarge Photo

2/5 Poor

The Blackfoot is experiencing raising water levels with increased runoff as the warm weather causes the ice on the lakes to melt off. Water flow speed is increasing as well, making this much more boating conditions than wading. Regardless, we recommend big flies to help the fish see your casts.

We can still fish here if you'd like, but we recommend you check out some other Missoula Rivers.

Current Hatches:
March Browns, Grey Drakes

If you do want to hit the water, book with one of our guides at https://guide-x.io. Make sure to grab a fishing license before you hit the water; you can get more info on that at https://guide-x.io/blog/montana-fishing-license-cost-2021.
