More Spring Fishing

Hitting the rivers of southwest Montana pretty hard this past week. We actually did have very warm weather and it was great to be wading the rivers again, with the sun bearing down, birds singing, and a few trout dancing. This beautiful rainbow ate a #10 skwala dry, inhaling with gusto, and jumping out of the water at least 5 times before he came to the net. With all this warm weather, several of Montana’s rivers started early run-off, but there is still plenty of fishing, at least for the next couple of weeks. The weather is changing once again, and we are predicted for a big snowstorm this weekend. Look for great Baetis everywhere that there are good water conditions. I still cannot believe how much snow we still have on the level here in West. It is going to be a big water year!
