After an intense rain storm on Tuesday, the Big Hole River is back on the drop. The flow has dropped back down to 2600cfs, and the visibility is increased to around 2 feet. The great streamer fishing that we had been seeing on the upper river should come back as quickly as the river is dropping. Yellow streamers thrown tight to the bank has produced quite a few fish over 20 inches in the last week. Most of the anglers have been floating from East Bank to Jerry Creek, but fish are being caught from as high as Fishtrap and as low as Notch. Cooler weather this weekend should keep the river on the drop and keep the fishing good.
