Joe Wenaweser on the Blackfoot and Bitterroot Rivers
Joe W., as we call him, fished with Wapiti Waters as a single with Jack Mauer guiding for 4 days. 2 on the Blackfoot and 2 on the Bitterroot. Fishing on the Blackfoot was good, not great, but good even with a private access. It is a beautiful river and this photo shows it.
The third day, they fished the main stem of the Bitterroot and had a great day! The fourth, they ventured up the West Fork of the Bitterroot and discovered it was still fishing great even after the pressure of many fishermen in June while the main stem was too high from the run-off. Joe and Jack fished and fished taking no time for photos. I am uploading an earlier photo of Joe though. Gotta show you something!
This photo was a few years ago and the guide is Eric Ederer working for Wapiti Waters on the Bitterroot River. Joe fishes with us a lot, and even though he doesn't take time for photos, this one is a beauty!
