Fun times here on the Mo this last week.
Rainy times this past week. Then we moved into a sunny and warmer week with a few hold over Trico’s in the morning, higher and brighter sunny skies with air temps reaching towards mid 70’s.
Pleasant for sure. The fishing for the most part better in the afternoons with the morning session cool and gaining strength as the days progress.
The week ahead is approaching with warmer temps and more seasonable weather patterns. We want it to be more fall-like. We like tiny BWO’s along with the Callibaetis and afternoon mega hatches.
While the Trico’s can still get you fired up, the BWO’s will get you fired up, how about an overcast ceiling for 2 months!
Big fish being caught too. A few over the hallowed 20″ mark in both flavors. Bigger browns are showing along with the super strong and virile rainbows on the upper river. A nice time to be around.
Like I mentioned above we have variable weather this month. Be prepared for highs to reach the mid 80’s and the lows in the mornings to be below 40F. So the selection of appropriate fishing clothes can be vast.
A sun-shirt acting as a base layer. Then a Skwala hoody or a secondary layer followed by your a rain jacket in your dry bag. And don’t forget the gloves. Come prepared for Rocky Mountain fall weather.
The entire river is fishing well. Good reports from all floating the Dam, the Wolf Creek section, below Craig, the canyon, and the lower river. Plenty for everyone to spread out and truly enjoy their favorite stretch.
News Flash: The Dam is fishing well. Lots of big trout on tiny flies like the Zebra. Also, the remainder of the river. All good out there.
Don’t forget about the Blackfoot this last week of September. It is a skinny rough trip. Worth it? Oh yeah.
Fall is a wonderful time to be here. Give us a shout if you need any help finding lodging or guide services. The colors are turning and the fish are happy!
Just a quick shout out for the incredible photography you guys continue to provide on your blog. Really outstanding composition and color. All around wonderful artistry captures the feel of the river as much as the look of it. Thank you.
Thanks Tom. Always appreciate your input. Looking forward to a great fall ahead. SOL
