    Should be a good time to be there. The river will be low like it is now, easy wading...tough fishing, very rewarding.

    You got that right, Dave! Not like it was 10 years ago though.

    I had considered driving up to Craig but was afraid of being literally blown out! Plus I was little hungover and couldn't leave early enough.

    Very nice John. I could almost "hear" the excitement in the words. Take care.

    Love the Bitterroot in the Hamilton area and up stream. 3wt 2hander and a 3wt single. Pure Joy to fish.

    Happy belated birthday!

    I love this time of year, everything is opening up and the fish are hungry.

    You've got that right Fred! I haven't fished the upper river in few years, but it sure it great water.

    Happy belated birthday and a tip of the hat to the choice of RR. Still on sale I think? Gotta love that the 'root is starting to give it up...

    Fantastic! Than you so much for sharing. Looks like a lot of snow off the banks. Were there many other anglers out? Good stuff. Cheers

    Looks like this is going to be a low water year on the Bitterroot per the Ravalli Republic newspaper (yesterdays addition). Lower than normal snow pack this winter. Odd off but I fell in 'love' with that little local newspaper and read the on line addition every day.

    The fun thing is you'll not just the local news but really interesting stuff you'd never find in a big city rag. Not unusual to find a story that the writer didn't just pull a news feed off the printer, but really did some back ground checking and drops in a "Well, well, well, what do we have here?"
