Fishing the Blackfoot River, Before the Storm
It was a semi stormy weekend in some parts of the state. That didn't stop me from trying to go out and wet a line. This time headed to the Blackfoot River.
It was a semi decent morning on the water before I arrived. I was running a bit late, and had a drive ahead of me. It was a bit rainy in the morning but looked as if it was going to clear up.
I was nymph fishing and my friend was throwing streamers. I had a bunch of luck but only with Whitefish, I think I had one trout on but with the fast current, I'd get them on and they would get off easily.
Then we saw some dark clouds and realized that a storm was pushing in. We luckily got off the water just in time and drove to Lincoln for some food and a drink.
Then after the storm, streamer fishing really picked up. Earlier it didn't seem any color was working and after the storm they were hot. Time of the day is a big thing with fishing depending on how you are fishing.
You can kind of see the dark clouds starting to roll in, in the picture below.
