Southwest Montana fly fishing finally has something positive to report. We have some valley temperatures above freezing. These warmer day time highs above freezing will start to get the ice off the lower Big Hole River. Right now we are still at winter flows and with the ice on the river you will not be able to get a boat down. On the warmer days some midge activity will be getting some fish looking up. Still your basic nymphing techniques of Pat’s Stones and San Juan worms in the tail out deep areas of the run will get you hooked up. If you are looking to wade fish I would recommend being where springs enter the river. Our Big Hole River fly shop is gearing up for a great Spring season and our Big Hole River guides are ready to get on the water.
the Big Hole Snowpack is looking very good. We are at 140% snow/water content and 115% of normal snowfall for this date in time.
