Jeff, June 22, We should see tricos soon, but nothing big yet. Hoppers, ants and beetles with droppers of jig nymphs, rubberlegs and San Juans has been the best option. A black, purple or red chubby has been good twitched for the nocturnal stones. PMD Spinners in the mornings have had some nice fish rising.
These fish are smart so presentation with light tippet and spinner 18 is key. You have to wade through some smaller fish to get the bigger ones, but if you persist the nice ones will eventually eat. Early mornings have still been the way to go. Fishing with hoppers in pink, tan or yellow has been good. Make sure to drop off a jig nymph, San Juan or a incher off the back. A few PMDs are hatching in the mornings and late evenings. Water temps have dropped a bit, but morning is still the time to get out, especially to beat the tube hatch out.
It is a great time to throw a dry hopper rig. Hoppers are out and about and are certainly worth a shot. Be careful wading as the water is cold and the rocks are always slippery. Clark Fork River, Deer Lodge — Anglers fishing with caddis and terrestrials has been effective recently. Good nymphs to use are Ray Charles 16 , sow bugs, superflash pheasant tails , red or chartreuse Copper Johns 14 , San Juan worms , olive scuds.
Dries to use are missing link caddis , purple haze , and Rocky Mountain mint Clark Fork River, Missoula — This river is still fishing good. Morning fishing is still the best as the water temps have dropped, but are still getting hot in the late afternoons. The upper river from Rock Creek to the Blackfoot water temps are better, but mornings are still the key to better fishing. Terrestrials, nocturnal stones and a few PMDs are getting fish looking up.
In the mornings, a black, purple or red chubby with a stonefly dropper like a incher, prince or rubberlegs for the nocturnal stones hatching at night. Twitching or even skating them will get some violent strikes this time of year.
A few PMD spinners are falling in the morning, have a few spinners in the box for those picky fish. Hoppers in pink, tan or purple with a 20 incher, Rubberlegs, San Juan or Jig nymph dropper later in the mornings has been a good prospecting bug. Cliff and Wade Lakes — These waters are fishing very well this time of year, especially when the spruce moths show up. Focus on the steeper wooded banks in the morning hours and use a summer spruce moth 14 to catch those trout cruising the banks in search of moths.
Once the wind comes up in the afternoon, drifting along those same banks and casting a pink thunder thighs hopper 10 or longhorn beetle can also be effective.
With the increased recreational use on the reservoir the water is murky. Evening trout fishing has picked up, and the fish being caught are not big but there is a lot of them. Perch fishing seems to be the best right now; they are targeting worms along the weed edges, in 15 to 20 feet of water.
The walleye seem to be hit and miss. Some fishermen have caught smaller walleye by the dam with orange rapalas. With the warmer temperatures remember to practice quick handling of your fish.
Big Arm and the Delta have been producing sporadically. Flathead River — This river is really looking good. For better chances, throw chatter baits or paddle tails. The weather has been around 90 degrees. The lake trout bite has been doing very well recently. The walleye, northern, bass and crappie have been caught on bottom bouncing and crank baits in about feet of water. The west side has been producing hefty walleye and northern bottom bouncing crawlers in feet of water. The salmon bite has been slow but steady.
The lake trout have been running pretty good. The best times to fish the Fresno are late evening to early morning 10 p. The water flows are down and the fishing has been solid. If you head this way you can get them on streamers, nymphs, and dries. However, it's certainly dry dropper season and this is a tough rig to beat this time of year.
Chubbies, ants and hoppers are great dries for this rig as they can hold up a fairly heavy nymph. For a dropper, fish are eating attractor mayflies, caddis, PMDs, stones and soft hackles. Nocturnal stones have been hatching throughout the river and spruce moths are hatching in the canyon in big numbers. Fishing a smaller chubby with a spruce moth dry has produced some fantastic dry fly action. If you're not getting fish on the dead drift try twitching and skating those dries.
Avoid fishing from Shed's Bridge down to the confluence as water temps are beyond what is considered safe for trout. A hoot-owl restriction prohibiting fishing from 2 p. Anglers are best to avoid this stretch altogether and focus on fishing higher up for some better cooler water temps. Georgetown Lake — Overall, the kokanee, brook and rainbow trout fishing has been fair to decent. Best techniques are stripping leech patterns, or using callibaetis nymphs, damselfly nymphs, scuds, dead-drifting chironomids and sow bugs.
The southeast shoreline is open. The wind has been picking up mid-day but calms down in the evenings. Whether they are lucky or not, like other owls, hoot owls can be beneficial to have around the community because they will hunt small pests that might damage crops or ruin food supplies. The hoot owl is also known as the barred owl.

The Auk, 55 2 , Food of young raptors on the Edwin S. George Reserve. The Wilson Bulletin, From weeks 8 to 10, the baby owls have learned how to fly and have become masters by the final week.
After this tenth week, they begin learning how to hunt instinctively and start catching prey on their own. This is when they begin to fly from the nest to begin finding their own territory and starting their own new home, although many of them will still be easily identified as Juveniles long into summer.
This years juveniles may have dramatically different vocalizations than the adults even during late summer. Most owls are known to be primarily nocturnal, but there are others that will hunt only at night and others that are active both during the day and night.
Below are a few types of popular nocturnal and diurnal awake and active during the day owls. We covered territory, courtship, predator defence, and even some variations between different types of Owls. I would love to help you go deep into the world of Bird Language!

A horned owl usually hoots a few times around 10PM and AM. I guess I need to record it so you could analyze it. I become attached to my birds. We have twoEagles that come every winter and perch right outside our patio. Any reasons this fellow would be constantly hooting non stop for long periods of time? Hi Stacey!Realistic hooting owl deters pests. Get rid of unwanted birds and rodents with this beautiful life like hand painted owl. When movement is detected the owl will hoot three times and the eyes shine to frighten other animals. Protect plants and fruit trees from night time predators/5(52).
