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.

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.
