Top 5 flies for October

  • Posted on

It's October 1st and the weather is looking very fishy outside.  Big fish are moving up into river systems, BWO's are making some appearances and the crowds are.....wait, what crowds??  With the rivers full of big fish you should be out enjoying the rivers to yourself and listening to the sounds of your drag.  Here are my top five flies that should keep you hooked up this October.  


1. Green Butt Skunk


2.  Silver Hilton


Pat just interrupted me to remind me that we are talking about Montana rivers, not the steelhead rivers of Washington, Oregon and Idaho that I am leaving for tomorrow (one less person on the rivers here in MT, you're welcome)....but the story is the same around Big Sky and Bozeman, MT. Big Fish are hungry, and eating consistently without pressure.  Here are the five flies I wouldn't leave home without to fish the Madison, Gallatin and Yellowstone Rivers in October.    


1. Sculpzilla


2. Little Green Machine


3. W's Low Rider Pheasant Tail


4. Soft Emerger BWO   


5. Sparkle Minnow
