Big Hole River Fall Fishing Report

It has been an up and down October so far as far as the weather goes. We have seen 30 degrees below normal some days and then normal air temperatures. We are back to the consistent fall weather right now, which has the fishing pretty darn good at the moment. Water temperatures are getting into the upper 40’s and the trout are feeding well during the 10 am – 4 pm window timeframe. For a few hours of the day and in specific sections of the river we are seeing Mahogany Duns and Blue Winged Olives. Our best corse of action for catching fish lately has been streamers and nymphs. Flows are up at the moment and the river is running clear. We are seeing 610 cfs in Melrose and 650 cfs in glen. Fishing will remain strong this month.

We currently have guides available and lodging discounts for the remainder of the month! Give us a call today 406-835-3474

The Beaverhead River is down to about it’s winter flow for the season. The outflow from Clark Canyon reservoir is 120cfs. The walk waders are happy but the drift boat guys are done for the year on the Beaverhead. You should find blue winged olives hatching and some midges. Streamers can be good on the overcast days and your basic nymph patterns are working well. CDC pheasant tails, zebra midges, WD 40’s and micro mayflies have been on the menu for the fish. Enjoy the nice fall weather and hit it before the next snow storm.
