Blue Damsel Lodge Update July 17, 2008

by Blue Damsel Manager on July 17, 2008

Life is good up at mile marker 10 on Rock Creek Road. A week of days in the mid-80’s and nighttime temperatures in the mid-40’s has made for some spectacular dry fly action and a cool and pleasant cocktail hour each night on the porch. We are pleased to report all of the area rivers are cleared, leveled and prime for fishing. We cannot remember the last time the late July forecast for trout fishing looked so good. 

Just yesterday, our buddy, Al (a current Blue Damsel guest) was fishing the upper Bitterroot. He is new to the sport and had never cast a fly rod in Montana. His first fish, caught within sight of the boat ramp, was a 19-inch wild and native cutthroat trout. And did I mention it was his birthday?! Happy Birthday, Al–way to go!
In other news, there has been some solid eating going on up at the lodge. Last night, chef Josh cooked up a roasted corn chowder starter followed by a oak-smoked rib-eye with mashed yams and sauteed cauliflower. We aren’t gettin’ any skinnier up here!
PS : Check out this picture of our friend, Brad, and guide, Pete, with a beautiful Montana Brown!
