Long Nights and Happy Trout

by Blue Damsel Manager on August 25, 2009

Although mid-day temps have been in the low nineties, longer and colder nights have meant cooler water temps. This has made for some great fishing opportunities around the lodge. Hopper/ droppers are still the game of choice (a red chernobyl got the job done on some big Upper Clark Fork browns yesterday), but we are starting to see more mayflies. BWOs, hecubas, and mahoganies are all around the corner, and fishing a purple haze or parachute adams is starting to become a better bet.

Our guides have been spread out on all rivers as of late, with the best fishing coming from the middle Blackfoot and upper Clark. We have not seen a 20-incher this week, and that surely means we’re due. Maybe today will be the day!
Things at the lodge are running smoothly. Josh has been busy picking cherries and huckleberries and creating some great pies, while Keith and Colin have been working on some new tunes for the campfire.
We wish everyone a happy end of summer!
