Dr. Oldstone on the Bitterroot River in August

Scripps' scientist, Dr. Oldstone has fished with Jack for longer than I can remember. We love it when he comes from CA to visit his sister in Hamilton. Spending time with the Doc and having him relax and catch trout is always fun.

Blackfoot, Big Hole and Beaverhead Rivers road trip in mid-August

This was a road trip for a number of days fishing the Blackfoot, Big Hole and Beaverhead Rivers in mid-August. All river fished well, but the Big Hole was low making it mostly a wade-fishing opportunity...get out early and off early in the heat and low water times.

Early August on the Big Hole with Ralph and Steve

They wanted to fish the Big Hole. Jack was concerned as the summer was getting pretty hot and flows were dropping but as it turned out, there was plenty of water and by getting on the river early, the fishing was very good. See some of the trout they caught in the photos below. The beauty of the Big Hole is hard to beat.
