Beaverhead River Fishing Report

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

The Beaverhead River has been fishing well lately. Flows are currently high with an outflow from Clark Canyon Reservoir of 808cfs. We have been seeing the start of the PMD hatch on the Beaverhead. Nymphing has been the name of the game but look for the dry fly fishing to pick up soon. You will also find Yellow Sallies in the week ahead. Caddis are hatching during the evening, which has made for exciting dry fly fishing.

Lodging is available June 20th – 27th. Give us a call to book your reservation 406-835-3474

Big Hole River Fishing Report

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

The Big Hole River has been fishing very well lately. We have Salmonflies from just above Jerry Creek down to Divide Bridge. You will see Golden Stone’s, PMD’s, Yellow Sallies and Caddis hatching river wide. It is dry fly season and we have been enjoying it! We have been fishing double dry fly rigs or dry dropper rigs most of the day. Stone fly activity has been the best from Jerry Creek down to Maiden Rock. below Melrose you will find more fish keying into PMD’s and Yellow Sallies. We have had some good streamer fishing in the evening or early morning hours. Don’t be afraid to chuck a few streamers in the shallow riffles during the daytime.

 

We have a few prime dates next week with Sunrise Lodging availability. Give us a call for your lodging needs 406-835-3474

The big bugs are here! We have Salmonflies from Glen all the way up into the Maiden Rock Canyon. Adult Salmonflies are blanketing the willows and they will start flying the next few days, which will make for some great dry fly fishing. Flows remain below average and we have past the peak flows for the spring. Water clarity is around 4 feet. You will want to find the fast water to search out the salmon fly activity. It is time to stop everything going on in your life and hit the Salmonflies on the Big Hole River.

Big Hole River Salmonfly Hatch

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

Summer is here and we all know what the month of June starts with, the anticipation of the Salmonfly hatch! Scorching hot temperatures the last few days has the river on the rise with about 2 -3 feet of visibility. Below average flows will make for a fishable Salmonfly hatch this year. We have not spotted any stoneflies yet but the hatch will start on the lower stretches below Melrose soon. When we spot the bugs we will let you know. We have been doing well on Salmonfly nymphs, caddis, and various mayfly jig head nymphs lately. Streamer colors of choice has been black or natural colors.
