Big Hole River Fishing Report

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

We just received a much needed snow/rain event in Southwest Montana and particularly in the Big Hole Valley. The River has come up from the storm but is now on the drop. We are noticing the river starting to clear on the edges today. As the flows continue to come down the river will clear and warm up. Fishing is going to get good the next few days. Once water temperatures get back into the 50’s we will see caddis hatching. The San Juan worm fishing will be great this week due to the recent bump in flows. The holiday weekend fishing should be great as the warmer weather arrives and the river continues to drop. Streamer fishing will improve as the displaced sculpin look for holding water.
