Summer has kicked into full force here in Southwest Montana. Had some high's in the 90's this past week. Hoot Owl Closures will surely go into effect in some watersheds soon. Fishing has been stunning, slow and just ok on my recent outings. Lot's of smaller fish seem to be active right now in the shallower riffles. Hatches are still occurring but the hopper fishing that should pick up soon will be the main player for most people in the weeks to come. I've been trying to get some action with the hopper but I've had limited results. As usual the action underneath is the way to go if you want numbers. Caddis, Stoneflies and small mayfly nymphs is what you should be trying to entice the trout with. If you want to go flashy get ready to slam the whities.
