While most the "mountain" whitefish I catch are here in MT, I do hail from another RM state and came across this good read in the local paper. Whitefish while ez to take a fly (specially any beadhead that shines) they are a good sign of a healthy river, good eats, and will take a dry fly/streamer/ or nymph. Not only that but at this time of year can be a good cure for the cold weather blues for some of us.
Enjoy, and remember dont hate whitey.
