Fly Fishing the Blackfoot River with John
Yesterday Jack fished the lower Blackfoot River with John. The fishing was very good and of course the BIG ONE got away. There are rocks to dodge so photo taking wasn't Jack's priority but here is one of John's trout in a photo. I could adjust the color but I didn't. The reflection from the sunny day on the water makes the fish glow.
John loves our Cheasapeake puppy, Freda. You can see her nose in the lower right of the photo.
It is raining again today, off and on, and probably will be raining tomorrow. The weather is beautiful for August. The rivers are recharging, the foliage is still green, and if you know where to go, the fishing is great.
Jack is fishing the Bitterroot today. Even though it isn't the best fishing because of the recent surge and some turbidity, the clients chose to do a stretch on the middle Bitterroot. Hopefully tomorrow I will have some photos and a report on the fishing there.
