Blackfoot River Sponsored by
Date 10-Oct-17
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Blackfoot River: The Blackfoot is getting pretty cold at night making for tough fishing in the mornings. Wait till things warm up. A 1-2 hour window of dry fly fishing with BWO’s in the afternoons has made for some good to great top water action. Extended Body BWO’s, Tilt Wings and P-Hazes have been getting the job done in a sz 18-20. Sub-surface action on nymphs and streamers has been working better as far as numbers go. Nymphing typical fall nymphs like October Caddis, San Juans, Eggs, Red Copper Johns, PT’s and Rubberlegs. Some big fish are looking for streamers in the tailouts and deeper runs. Change up your retrieve to see what they want from a dead drift to a fast rip. Dungeons, Drunk and Disorderly’s, Baby Gonga’s, Smoke n Mirrors, Flash Minnows, EP Streamers and Zoo Cougars.
