Fishing Report:

The Beaverhead has dropped to winter flows.  Leave the boat at home and get the waders on since you will not get your boat down the river right now.  The fish are in the obvious places right now.  Blue Winged Olives are hatching and your basic Beaverhead nymphs are working well.

Fishing Report:

Fishing remains very good on the Beaverhead.  Flows out of Clark Canyon Reservoir remains at 750cfs.  PMD’s and Yellow Sallies have been hatching well on the Beaverhead.  You will find good dry fly fishing in the slick and below High Bridge on PMD’s and Sallies.  The Nymphing remains very consistent.  Look for the fish sitting on the edges of runs and in the 3 foot chop water.

Shelf ice, and floating ice on the Big Hole, not a surprise since it is winter here.  We have a good start to the snowpack.  The upper Big Hole is reading 165% of normal.  It is still early in the snow season but it is a good start.  If you find the itch to get out this winter I would recommend finding the spring fed areas that stay ice free on the Big Hole.  Midges will be out on damp, mild overcast days and nymphing a San Juan Worm and a #10 Pat’s Stone will get ’em.
