Big Hole River Fall Fishing Report

Fall fishing on the Big Hole River is in full swing right now. As you can see above a few large brown trout are being caught as we move into the falls season. We currently have cooler water temperatures and flows have slightly bumped due to some rain. We are still well below historical average flows for September. Hopefully we continue to receive some moisture to get the river flows up. We are starting to see some of the Fall hatches on the Big Hole River. You will find Blue Winged Olives and Mahogany Dun’s hatching. Small flying ant’s are also taking fish on dry flies in the afternoons. Streamers in the shallow rifles and pools are working. We have done best on darker colored streamers. Keep your streamer moving slow and deep for the best results.

From Dickie Bridge down to Lower Maiden Rock FWP is open to fishing the entire day. All other sections of the Big Hole are currently closed to fishing due to low flows. Please give us a call for any clarification or the most up to date information. 406-835-3474.
