Spring Warm Weather: A.K.A. Blown River
Warm weather this time of year in Southwest Montana always comes with some sacrifices… A.K.A – a blown out river. We had a great weekend of fishing with Skwalla dries as well as good streamer fishing, but we are now paying the price for our first taste of true spring weather. The river has taken a hefty jump in flows due to the two days of warm weather that we had. The good news, if you can call it good news, is that it is snowing and cold again. The upper river near Wisdom has already started to drop and we should see the rest of the river start to drop in the next 24 hours. The river should start to fish again either tomorrow or Wednesday. The clarity will come back as soon as it drops, and the fishing will get back to where it was.
