St. Regis River - Montana

Dear YellowStoneFly, 

After morning meeting with all afternoon to myself  (my better half was at work) I drove over to St.Regis, MT. With every intention of fishing the Clark Fork (quite stained and running hard), I decided instead on the St. Regis River.  I found myself on the St. Regis River, an old dirty and dusty gravel road about 7 Miles west of St. Regis which parallels I-90. This river, which I am sure you know, flows right next to I-90 beginning just below Lookout Pass down to where it dumps into the Clark Fork River in St. Regis, MT.

High water made river access tough. With a 33 foot long roll cast from shore,  I was able present a fluffy caddis to a waiting brown …a couple of tail walks and head shakes later I was just lucky enough to land a beautiful brown trout. (Photo Attached). Hole after fishing hole and couple of fish later I made my way closer to home.

I have a great nymph rig set up, the fish were really hot for it. I had to fight off the whitefish though in order to find the trout. I strongly suggest all eager Idaho FlyFishers watch the flows on the St. Regis River and any afternoon you have it to yourself, hit the upper stretches with your favorite wet fly and enjoy all the flora and fauna Montana has to offer!    

Tight Lines,
