Yesterday, I had clients that wanted to see the Blackfoot. They were only going to be in town for a few more days, and had already fished the Bitterroot. So another guide and I, Brian Grande, drove towards the top of the river to put in on the North Fork. The Blackfoot had not been fishing as well as the Bitterroot in my opinion, but it had still been ok in the recent trips i had been up there. My clients, Jim and Kevin, were from San Diego, and were good fisherman. It wasn’t long until Kevin hooked into a big Bull Trout. He did a great job fighting the fish, and finally got it in after a long fight, we took some quick photos and got it back in the water. It was a good fish in the 24-25 inch range.
After that, Jim got around to catching some nice Cutthroats on dry flies.
Overall, the day might have been a little slower in terms of consistent action, but I was glad they brought some good fish to the boat, and we had awesome weather in the Blackfoot Valley.
