Jack fished Monday with Geoff Thomas and Mike Connell on the Bitterroot River. It was a beautiful day. The flows are still pretty good and the water temperatures are dropping which is better for the fish. On another day, Reba and Geoff Thomas fished with guide Dave Heimes. Daves photos are included in the slide show.
