The Beaverhead River fishing report has been pretty good.  The Beaverhead is a great wading option right now.  We have had good Blue Winged Olives hatching on the river.  You will find pods of fish rising to the Blue Wings in the afternoons on the overcast days.  Nymphing has remained good on the river with the usual Beaverhead flies. 

Remember that from the Dam down to Pipe Organ Bridge is closed to fishing until the 3rd Saturday of May.  This section of river is closed to protect the rainbows as they spawn. 

Flies: #18 Soft Hackle Ray Charles; #18 Split Back BWO; #16 Micro May Fly; #18 Pheasant Tail; #16 Tan Scud; #18 Bubble Back Emerger

The Big Hole River fishing reports from our guides has remained pretty good.  We are starting to see a few Skwala’s on the lower Big Hole River.  On the soft tail outs of the runs tight to the banks is where you will get your dry fly Skwala eats.  With the warmer weather on tap today and tomorrow look for the dry fly fishing to improve.  The dropper fishing off the dry fly has been straight silly lately.  We have had 30 to 40 fish days on the dropper.  We are moving some fish on the streamer lately.   

Flies: #8 Mr. Beam; #10 Bullet Head Skwala; #8 Rogue River Skwala  #8 San Juan Worm; #10 Pat’s Stone Olive/Brown: #8 RL Stone; #18 Zebra Midge; #6 J.J. Special #4 Coffey Bugger; #4 Bad Boy

Fishing has remained pretty good underneath the surface.  The morning fishing has been slow.  With the cold nights the fish seem to be getting active around 11:00 a.m. and the river continues to fish well till about 5:30 p.m.  Flows have been fluctuating around 550cfs.  We have had some nemouras hatching and midges hatching during the afternoon hours.  The nymphs of choice have been San Juan Worms, Pat’s Stones and midges.  The Skwala hatch has not started yet.  It looks like we will get a warm up early next week, which will get the Skwala nymphs moving towards the banks.  Our best fishing has been below Melrose in either the Melrose to Brownes section or Brownes to Notch sections. Stay in touch with more Big Hole River fishing reports and Big Hole River Skwala hatch updates.

Flies: #8 San Juan Worm; #10 Pat’s Stone Olive/Brown: #8 RL Stone; #18 Zebra Midge; #6 J.J. Special #4 Coffey Bugger;
