Big Hole Ice Off

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

Things changed quickly here yesterday. The ice is breaking up on the upper Big Hole which has increased the flow of the river and the clarity got really bad yesterday. We had a boat down in the notch bottom area and they saw several adult Skwalas on the water. Fishing was good for about 2 hours on dries. With the lack of clarity in the river today and the steep rise in volume fishing will be tough today. I would stay off the river unless you want to take a scenic float and enjoy the warm spring weather. We will let you know when things improve.
