Tom fished with Jack for a number of days on the Blackfoot, Bitterroot and then the Big Hole River where his friend Dick joined him. Here are some photos that Tom sent to us. Here is an excerpt from his message when he sent the photos.

Yes—had a great time with Jack on the Blackfoot, the Bitterroot, and the Big Hole rivers. Jack did an absolutely tremendous job—-helped coach me in a positive and constructive way— every step of the way —-gave me the best possible chance to catch a fish at every opportunity all day long on every river—-hardest working guide I have ever seen. Fantastic trip—-look forward to coming again.

Bitterroot Basin Snowpack info for Feb 2016

Bitterroot Basin Snowpack info for Feb 2016

Winter snow in the mountains translates into spring, summer and fall waterflows in our rivers. So, we keep watch on the snow levels. We actually had a good snow accumulation in Dec 2015 and Jan 2016. It is still precipitating in February, but the temperatures are above average. Good news, still a good snow pack. Today I am posting some info on our current snowpack in Montana and a few photos from the mountains and Bitterroot River.
