The Friday Hot List is Back! The Orvis Fishing Reports and Conditions pages offer up-to-date reports, including stream and river flows, tides, recommended flies and equipment, and special fishing tips. At any given time, those waters that offer the very best fishing become part of the “Red Hot” list. To ensure that those making the reports aren’t exaggerating the quality of their local fishing, each reporter is allowed only four red hots per year per location, so they only rank their spot red hot when it’s truly outstanding. Every Friday, we’ll highlight those waters that offer the best fishing for the weekend.

1. Muskegon River, Michigan

“Little black and olive stoneflies are doing their downstream biological drifts along the shoreline,” says Matt Supinski, of Gray Drake Lodge & Outfitters. “Some days, you can see hundreds of them wiggling towards the surface.The trout and steelhead have started to gorge on them!”

1. Bitterroot River, Montana

“The entire river is fishing well, but is more consistent above Victor,” say the folks at Blackfoot River Outfitters. “Dry-fly fishing is on right now. Fish the nymphs until you see March browns and Skwalas on the water then switch up to dries.”
