Runoff Fishing Report

[eye_row data_width=”container”][eye_column data_width=”0-12-0″][eye_text]

We all know the Big Hole can fish well during runoff but you can always have some tough days. As we move into the month of May we will have high water and off color water but we also catch the largest brown trout of the year in May on the Big Hole River. The Big Hole is currently on the rise but we have 18 inches of clarity on the banks. In the month of May we will have mother’s day caddis and great streamer fishing. If the weather stays warm look for the mother’s day caddis to hatch in the next 10 days. We will keep you posted on the progress of the caddis. Right now we are throwing streamers, and various nymphs.  The dry fly fishing has been spotty but great at times. We still have skwalas up river and march brown’s. Conditions in May change quickly so feel free to give us a call or stay hooked to our reports.

Flies: #8 Mr. beam Skwala, #10 Bullet Head Skwala, #10 Pat’s Stone Brown/Green #8 San Juan Worm, Bellyache Minnoe Olive #8 Sparkle Minnow, #4 Yellow/Black Beldar; #10 Prince Nymph: #12 Flashback pheasant Tail
