The Blackfoot was good today. Monday.
A few folks on it but we beat the crowds early this morning.
Chubby’s, caddis, moths, and assorted attractors ruled the day. Headhunters has plenty of Blackfoot River patterns to get you through the day. Ninch, our fly guru, lived and fished the Missoula waters for years before making his way across to the arid side of the divide. We got all those cool floaty flies. Nymphs too. You want to try out your hand at streamer fishing the B-Foot? Got ’em in stock.
Lots of sun, eagles, vultures, and killer Montana birds filled the silence between the trouts.
Brookies, Browns, Rainbows, and Cutty’s all on board and in the net.
Big ones? No, not really. But all the same, a good time.
The Mo holds bigger trout. Blackfoot holds the beauty. Hands down.
Change up your itinerary and include the Blackfoot River this coming trip. We can help.
Tie in dinner and a few drinks in Missoula too. A cool overnighter to finish your trip to central Montana. Missoula is a kick and a real Montana town with amenities that you will like. Great food and really fun folks. Shopping, the confluence of many rivers, a University, west side living.
Just do it. You certainly will enjoy it.
