|The 3 equidistant ramps on the Upper Koot, MT -- Each a full day float.|
September and October tend to be the best month as the days shorten and water cools and flows decrease. After about mid-September there is said to be an "October moth" hatch which I believe to be a giant caddis or large "Aquatic Moth". Nymphing on the bottom produces about 50/50 whitefish.
The Idaho Fly Fishers Association has a trip going September 13-15, 2017 with 14 participants. There is still time to join us. Simply go to the Idaho Fly Fishers Trip Page (or email me) and make your reservations today. We make NO profit. It is simply fun for all laced with cigars, Jack Daniels, good food, tall tales, poker and terrible jokes.
Hot takes and tight lines to all. The Idaho / Montana fly fishing season is upon us--FINALLY!
