July 26, 2014 Hebgen Lake MT Fishing Report: Sunny, Mild Breeze, High 70s

I’d had pretty good success on a Black Gold Hardback #10 the day before so I started the day with the same bug. I was convinced that the peninsula I’d fished yesterday was a perfect ambush location so I went back to it for the second morning in a row. It was around 10:30 as I entered the water off the point, but things had changed from the previous day. There were occasional fish feeding around the point and I began to see Callibaetis, both spent spinners and vibrant adults. It didn’t...

July 25, 2014 Hebgen Lake MT Fishing Report: Sunny/Mountain Breeze/80 Degrees

At 10:00 AM I’m standing at the point of a peninsula that protrudes from the shoreline about 75 yards.

I wouldn’t have changed a thing because we had ourselves one heck of a good time. As a final mountain trip with the grandkids, we camped at Hebgen Lake, Montana. The kids went to Yellowstone and Grandpa had a window of time in the middle of the day to chase fish. I was on cook detail in the evenings so I didn’t get to fish the perfect window...

July 14, 2014 Middle Fork of the Boise River Fishing Report: Hot, Hot, and More Hot, Slight Afternoon Breeze

If you are brave enough to drive the 30 miles of dirt road full of wash boards, and windy as all get out, then you could find yourself on a river with endless riffles throughout. The Middle Fork would remind you a lot of the Madison River with continuous riffles and pretty heavy fall to the river. The confluence of the Middle Fork and Arrowrock Reservoir is one of the places that hold bigger fish on the whole system, but if you elect to drive further up towards Atlanta, the fish tend to get smaller but there are...
