8-25-11 Fishing report

The Flathead River is now in its August paterns with ants, hoppers and beetles working well. Fish in a little deeper waters for larger fish. They are getting smarter now so make sure you don't have any drag on the fly.

Flathead River Fly Fishing

August 14 the Flathead river has been fishing real well ever since it has cleared up in July. Cutthroat Trout and Rainbow and occasional Lake Trout on dry flies. We have been fishing orange and red Humpys just started getting fish on Hoppers and if nothing is hatching we are using a large attractor like a Chernobyl Ant. The hatches have been Yellow Sally's, PMD's and a few Caddis.

7-14-2011 Rogers Lake Arctic Grayling

After a night of solid rain, Flathead River was already 1' higher than yesterday.  We decided to go after some Arctic Grayling on Rogers Lake, one of my favorite stand-by locations.

Today I had two young men who are both 13 years old, and pretty new to Fly Fishing but eager to catch some fish while visiting Flathead Valley.  We anchored at the edge of the reeds and got two lines in the water.  The Grayling were very active today.  We had 30-40 bites, and managed to land 10 nice fish off of Prince Nymphs.
