The Beaverhead River has been fishing well lately. We are still seeing some PMD’s and Yellow Sallies on the river. Look for these hatches to tapper off and we will move into Trico’s and terrestrials this next week. Hoppers are starting to work on the lower Beaverhead River. We have been catching some great fish lately on hoppers. Flows are starting to drop out of Clark Canyon Reservoir. Dropping flows will help the dry fly fishing dramatically.

Big Hole River Report

The Big Hole is in a transition period from PMD’s and caddis to terrestrials and Trico’s. We are seeing some PMD’s in the morning hours hatching. The hopper fishing below Melrose has been good. We are fishing small hoppers and ant patterns in the size #14, #12 and #10 range. Trico’s have been spotted on some days below Divide. Look for the trico hatch to thicken up this coming week. Streamers fishing and nymphing in the shallow riffle has remained productive for our guides. Spruce Moth’s have not been spotted yet but we should start to see them soon. Flows have remained fantastic lately on the Big Hole. We are still using drift boats from Divide down stream.

Big Hole River Fishing Report

We have been enjoying fantastic fishing on the Big Hole recently. Currently the flows around Melrose are 1,230 cfs. We are having hatches of PMD’s, Caddis, Yellow Sallies and nocturnal stoneflies. Dry fly fishing in the early morning hours on nocturnal stoneflies has been good and then PMD’s around 10:00 am have had the fish looking up. You will have Yellow Sallies midd day and Caddis in the evening. The streamer fishing in the shallow riffles are producing great brown trout right now through the day and even in the bright sun.

Beaverhead River Fishing Report

The Beaverhead continues to produce fantastic fish this year for us. Flows out of Clark Canyon Reservoir have come up substantially due to irrigation needs in the valley. Flows out of Clark Canyon Reservoir are sitting around 680cfs this morning. Wade fishing will be very tough right now, so your best option is floating. With these higher flows the best dry fly fishing will be near the dam and the further down stream you go the dry fly opportunity will be tougher. We have hatches of PMD’s, Caddis and Yellow Sallies. Look for hopper fishing to pick up in a few weeks. The upper Beaverhead has had great dry fly opportunities on PMD’s and the Caddis fishing in the evening has been fantastic.

Big Hole River Fishing Report

The Big Hole is fishing very well right now. We are seeing flows around 1,700cfs in Melrose today. The lower stretches of the river are seeing nocturnal stoneflies hatching, PMD’s, Caddis and Yellow Sallies. The best opportunity for stone fly dries is getting out early in the morning or late in the evening on the lower river. We should to see nocturnal stoneflies in the coming week up in the Maiden Rock Canyon. Streamers have been working very well in the shallow fast riffles. Sculpin and minnow patterns are working well for streamers. You will find pods of fish rising to PMD’s in the morning hours and caddis in the evenings. River conditions are ideal right now for great fishing on the Big Hole.

Big Hole River Fishing Report

Here we are in July and the Big Hole is over 4,000cfs. June was a rollercoaster month and we are looking forward to dropping flows on the Big Hole River. The river has crested from this last rain/snow event. It looks like the weather is going to dry out and the Big Hole will be in fantastic shape for the month of July. We have hatches of Golden Stone’s, PMD’s, Caddis, Drakes and Yellow Sallies. When conditions are right the dry fly fishing the next several days should be stellar. The streamer fisherman are excited having these high flows to chuck streamers. Look for the Big Hole to continue to drop and fishing to get very good from Maiden Rock down stream.
