Even with all the nay-saying and craziness going on in the world these days, one thing is for certain – it still kicks ass when a trout eats a giant piece of foam floating down a cut bank.
While this season has had it’s ups and downs with regards to water conditions – we seem to have stabilized at a damn near perfect flow for throwing dries on the Big Hole and Jefferson Rivers. If water temps start climbing, and they will – focus your efforts on the Beaverhead, which still has over 900 cfs of cold, clear water running well past the town of Dillon.
We still have a few openings towards the end of the month, which will be PRIME time hopper fishing on all of our area waters.
So, grab your favorite 5 wt, a handful of hoppers, your trusty cowboy hat and enjoy the final month of summer here in the Rockies. Before you know it, the temps will be frosty in the mornings, and hot in the afternoons. Elk will be bugling, dogs will be pointing birds and the leaves will be changing colors. This is a great time to be alive folks – so soak it all in.
