Water temperatures are rising, but so are the fish… If you hit it at the right time. Being the first or last boat on the water is key during these hot summer days. Despite these hot temps, the bugs continue to hatch and the fish are still looking up for those tasty dry flies. If you don’t get on the river until later in the day, throw on a nymph rig if you’re prospecting for more fish. For all you “Dry or Die” fisherman, don’t hesitate to throw a hopper if you’re struggling to move fish in the afternoon. Again, keep in mind that this warm water is extremely hard on fish and that you should use heavier tippet and fight the trout fast.
Blackfoot River- Golden stones, green drakes, stimulators, adams, rubber legs, San Juan worms
Comments: The Creek has been fishing very well. The nymph game is strong. Your classic winter nymphs are all producing great trout. Rubberlegs, Worms and flashy prince style bugs are the ticket. Don't be afraid of throwing a streamer if thats your thing. Brown and Yellow.

BWO's and Mahoganies are on the menu. Sunshine is coming our way, but a mayfly attractor like a P-Haze, P-Craze, Adams or Copper Cripple should do the trick. Nymphing October Caddis, Princes, PT's and Reckoners is also a great option with the sun high in the sky. Streamer fishing continues to get better with the cool water temps and fish getting aggresive before the winter. Sparkle Minnows, Beldar Rubberlegs, Yellow Yummies, Sculpzilla's and Dungeons are all getting some love.
