The Lower Bitterroot on a Hot August Day
The lower Bitterroot is wider, flatter, slower, and shallower then the upper or middle Bitterroot. We were actually looking for Pike on a bright August day, yet in the morning, we had trico fishing, later we had hopper fishing. We did throw to some pike, too, and though they chased the flashy wet flies, we never pulled a pike into the boat.
We did see floaters (meaning warm water), birds, and we caught rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout. I rowed for Jack quite a bit, so my camera was put away. I didn't take as many photos as I usually do. These photos give you the drift of our trip on Friday.
