The temperatures this winter have been up and down. We have had bitter cold sub zero weather and then warm spells with unseasonable weather. Currently, we are in a nice stretch of weather with air temperatures reaching 40 degrees in the afternoons. It has been a good time to get out and wipe the dust off the fly rods and wade fish some runs on the Beaverhead. Your basic nymph box is all you need right now to have some success. For the most part the trout are in winter mode and they will be active only during the heat of the day for about 2 hours in the afternoon. Things are looking up for the spring season on our Southwest Montana fly fishing waters. Snowpack in the Beaverhead drainage could use a boost but we have plenty of drainages that feed the Beaverhead with snowpack in the 90% – 100% range. Even though we still have a lot of winter left here in Southwest Montana we are itching for spring fishing on the Beaverhead. Check out our current Spring fishing packages.
