The boats are out in full force thorough the Missoula Valley, and the Bitterroot looks like a carnival ride on the weekends. Fishing is good underneath and average on the surface but look for that to change with the heatwave this week. Skwalas will be right around the corner along with the influx of Washington License Plates. The low rider will turn more heads than the bushy wings as the hatch progresses, so keep that in mind. These fish get Beat Down this time of year in no time flat, and the angler that adjusts his technique accordingly will see better results. Top bugs have been the Bittterroot Prince, the worm, and the Foamie Homie.
