Big Browns on the Blackfoot

This brown trout was more than willing to come up from the deep for Jayme Erickson's dry fly, though the anticipation of watching his slow eat almost got the better of her. Hold on tight and set it right, and another healthy fish to the net.

With my guide trip moved back a few days due to incoming weather, we decided to do a little scouting in the area of the lower Blackfoot that might have been most impacted by yesterday’s soap spill, and we were more than happy with the results. Throughout the confluence the water is in great shape, with no signs of damage that could be found. The fish are still there, still healthy and still willing to eat a well drifted fly. Big browns and rainbows were eating, and the confluence is as beautiful as ever. Summer fishing at it’s finest.
