March Madness

Although March madness isn't quite here the Bitterroot has really started to fish in the last week.  I have been out there the last three days in my new Bitterroot Skiff (check out our facebook page to see pics) and fishing has been solid to great with only the occasional fish eating a dry we are depending on the dropper to get things done and underneath the big fish are on the chew.  I would think in the next few days we should begin to see solid numbers of Skwalas out there and the dry fly fishing picking up in the afternoons.  We have had a week of near 60 degree temps so things should happen somewhat earlier than last year.  I was also over on the Missouri earlier in the week fishing with a buddy and the streamer bit was pretty solid in the afternoons.  We are looking at an average 100% snow pack so things should settle back to normal this year and we should see solid fishing for the whole season with very few suprises.  More to come.  karl@sheerwaterguides.com
