[eye_row data_width=”container” data_padding_row=”0,15px,0,15px” data_margin_row=”75px,0″][eye_column data_width=”7″][eye_text]

The Big Hole River has been fishing pretty well lately. We are in the late summer transition to some fall activity. On the warm days you will have trico’s in the mornings and hopper fishing in the afternoons. On the wet cool days we are seeing Blue Winged Olives hatching and some October caddis have been spotted in certain sections of the Big Hole. Streamer fishing has also been working for guys as the brown trout are gearing up for fall activity. Our hopper fishing on the warm days on the lower Big Hole stretches below Melrose has been fantastic lately. Tan Chernobyl’s, Thunder Thigh Hoppers and Morrish hoppers have all been bringing large rainbows to the surface. get your summer fishing in before fall hits us and it’s time to bring the streamers out in full force.
