Beaverhead River Fishing Report

Fishing has been pretty good on the Beaverhead. We are still seeing some hatches of PMD’s, Caddis and Yellow Sallies but the hatches are diminishing. We will start moving into Trico’s below the dam and hoppers and ant’s on the lower river. We are also seeing some crane fly activity on the Beaverhead. Look for the crane fly and hopper fishing to pick up dramatically over the next week. Flows out of Clark Canyon Reservoir are currently steady at 660 cfs.

“Hoot-Owl” restrictions prohibit fishing during the hottest times of the day. A hoot-owl restriction prohibiting fishing from 2 p.m. to midnight. the Hoot-owl restriction is currently in effect in the below locations on the Beaverhead River.

-The lower Beaverhead River from Anderson Lane to the Jefferson River.

The section that is open to all day fishing with no restrictions is from the Dam down to Anderson Lane fishing access site. If you need clarification of this location please call the shop 406-412-3463.
