Skwala time on the Bitterroot

Trout are beginning to chase skwala dry fly patterns on the Bitterroot River. It's a good time to head south out of Missoula and follow the hatch. Keep an eye on weather reports, and also river flows on the USGS stream gauge website. River flows have climbed about 200 cfs in the last week at the Darby gauge, and if it warms and the river spikes, that could shut down the bite.
