Fishing has been good some days and tough at times. We are seeing the start of the Trico hatch on the Big Hole River. You will find scattered PMD’s in the morning along with the Trico’s. Hoppers and ants are also taking fish on the surface lately. Flows are well below average and water temperature closures and low flow closures are in place on certain sections of the river.

Full River Closure from the Headwaters to the North Fork Road near Wisdom due to low flows.

Hoot Owl Closure from the North Fork Road to Dickie Bridge

Hoot Owl Closure from Lower Maiden Rock FWP ( or known as Dead Zone ) to Notch Bottom (Tony Shoonen Access)

Full River Closure from Notch Bottom (Tony Shoonen) downstream to the Beaverhead confluence

The river remains open to fishing with no restrictions from Dickie Bridge to Lower Maiden Rock FWP (Dead Zone)

We are asking all anglers to stop fishing once the river hits 68 degrees on any section of the river.
