We fished the Blackfoot River several miles below the dam a few days ago. We caught a few fish on bead head peacock leeches, but nothing on dries even tho’ hoppers and trico spinners were abundant. The fish just were not interested in coming up. A big reason why was that weeds were breaking apart in the river. When this happens, life forms are released from them to drift in the current. All fish need to do to feed is hang out and grab drifting life forms as they go by. It takes minimum effort for them to respond in this manner, so no wonder those that we caught were in great shape.
