April is here !!
The Flathead River is at 22,000 CFS. Wow !!! Where did our pre run off fishing go. The fish are there … its just harder to find them out there with these flows. I ran the lower river on Sat and managed to find a few. Was it lights out ??? No, but a great day on a big freestone river with a great friend . Just us a few Cut Throat Trout , and a bunch of Eagles. Not another human for miles. Pink worms long with lots of weight was the ticket. I was hoping to see some Beatis and March Browns…. No bugs !!!! Water temps are 39 DEG. As the river warms there will be bugs. This should happen in the very near future. Watch the USGS graph, if she is on the drop and it is sunny out , you should go. If you are floating the river…. Please be careful. She is BIG and PUSHY. Dont under estimate the power of the Flathead River at these flows. SPRING FLATHEAD SPECIAL HALF DAY FOR TWO ANGLERS $275. Let our Guides do the work and put you on some fish.
The Missouri River continues to produce. Nymphing has been solid in the Canyon. Good Streamer reports from down low for some BIG BROWNS !!! Decent midge activity on the upper river. Soooo…chose your discipline and get after it. If you need some help finding success on the Missouri come by the shop and we will do our best to dial you in. We have Guides over there daily, and are in the MO loop. Better yet , take advantage of our SPRING MO SPECIAL , FULL DAY ON THE RIVER WITH OUR BEST GUIDES FOR TWO ANGLERS $395.
This pic just sent via E Mail from Lakestream customer Kenny Gerg. Kenny fishes the salt more than most. He threw up a Lakestream Local sticker in Mexico, and the keys, and in Belize.
