Big concerns this time of year is the impact of weather on the roads and colder weather. Getting back in such as Willow Creek and Blackfoot River countries almost requires preparation for bad roads and cold weather. So pack foul weather gear along with making your vehicle “bad road ready” in case you venture to places such as given above. What would be the best fly selection for smaller streams this time of year? Small streamer patterns, small nymphs, with and without a bead head, and for closer to the surface fishing depend on BWO dun and emerger patterns.
