Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Blackfoot River Outfitters's Tip of the Week
1. As the water drops, the fish will move away from the banks and into more "normal" holding areas 2. Single dry flies have been working depending on what is most abundantly hatching. 3. The water is high and fast. First of all, stay safe. If you're floating ask us about obstructions. This river is not for novice paddlers. Please reach out to us before floating. Fishing from a boat is illegal starting July 1 but you can still float.
