Big Hole River Salmonfly Hatch Update

The Big Hole has been fishing fantastic lately. The Salmonfly hatch has not let us down one bit. Some of the best dry fly fishing of the year has been had lately depending on the time of day and the stretch of river that you are on. You will find Salmonflies and golden stones hatching below East Bank and all the way down into the Maiden Rock Canyon. We also have PMD’s and caddis hatching throughout the day. Streamers have also been good in the evening hours. Looks like we are getting moisture early this week and then some drier weather later in the week. The river is currently at a stable flow and visibility is around 4 feet.
