Late fall on the Blackfoot means having the river to yourself, most days. The last hurrah for lots of boat traffic ends with the warm weather, and the fishing isn’t easy anymore. But what it takes in a bit of skill it gives back in the rewards of seeing the canyons colored up, and the tug of a native cutthroat on a floating line. The summer’s long gone by the time these colors come out. It might mean warmer clothes, but it also means big fish moving for last eats before winter. Here’s to late fall cutthroat, and a #tbt that makes late fall on the Blackfoot seem worth all summer to wait for.
