Hopper Fishing Heats Up & BBQ Under the Big Sky!

July 26, 2023

Fly Fishing Update:

Weather remained in the mid-to-upper 90°F range this week. Trips are leaving earlier to beat the heat and capitalize on great morning hatches. Flows are at 4'500 CFS and the water temperature is currently 65°F. Please fight and release fish quickly to minimize stress. MRR guests continue to find success during the evening caddis hatch.

Spinnerfall of Tricos remains good, caddis are catching and hoppers are producing hogs! With lower water levels anglers are happily rolling hoppers over shallow weed beds and edges to produce some incredible eats. This can be a great time of year to prospect with large terrestrials. Fish hoppers and ants along likely banks.

Nymphing is great in the late mornings and along mid river shelfs. Frenchies, zebra midges, sunken spinners, caddis pupa and weight flies all continue to produce results throughout the river. As the day heats up, make sure to bump up your tippet accordingly and fight fish fast.

Streamer fishing reports will remain quiet until cooler temperatures return!

Drop us a line and we hope to see you soon!
