Early snows and fall colors make fishing area rivers and streams a special experience. Brown trout are active preparing for the spawn and baetis are hatching! It doesn’t get much better than a day of streamers and dry flies on a nice fall day in Montana.
Look for the little olive dry flies in the afternoon. Sparkle duns are a good choice for rising fish. An olive parachute is a good searching pattern pre and post hatch.
As always, the Grinch and black bunny fur streamers are key, with Sparkle Minnows and the Barely Legal taking big browns all day.
