Sorry for the delay in posting, but August was a crazy month. Not to mention over half of it was spent in Montana.

A General Disclaimer:
As everyone knows, the temps have been a bit high the past couple of weeks; however, fishing from the driftboats has remained fairly good. One of the few occasions I'd say that a good angler can put up bigger numbers of fish from a drift boat than from the bank is when the fishing is tough. We've all seen it: For some reason the fish are sulking, but if you cover enough water, you'll find a few willing players. Well, there is no better way to cover water than from a drift boat.

On the upside, the smallmouth fishing has been really good of late. The higher water temps have had all those big bass that usually hug the bottom and gulp crayfish and sculpins up in the water column and chasing streamers (and spinners I hear).

Depending on who you talk to, the trout fishing has ranged from poor to great over the past couple of weeks. We've had pretty consistent fishing (with the exception of last Friday when the army corps decided to turn the river off--what the #@$*?).

Nymphs, fished under indicators, and fished actively have been productive. Stones, Iso's, caddis and small mayflies have all had their moments.

Streamer fishing has also been picking up. Now is the time to get out there and stick a big fat fall brown. It should be a great weekend. Get out there and mix it up with a big piece of meat--you might get your best fish of the season, or that fish of a lifetime. Have fun and be safe.
