Big Hole Fishing Report

The Big Hole fishing has continued to be good for us this week. We have been hitting the water early for some great nocturnal stonefly action on dry flies. Mid morning we are seeing PMD’s and drakes with a few caddis scattered around. The afternoon fishing has consisted of dry/dropper or double nymph rigs in the fast shallow riffles. Hopper season is right around the corner for us on the Big Hole River. We continue to see nice brown trout and rainbows everyday on guide trips. We currently have some openings for guide trips the last week of July. Give us a call to book your trip!

Currently Section 5: which is the last 15 miles of the Big Hole from Tony Shoonen FAS (Notch Bottom ) to the confluence of the Jefferson River is On Hoot Owl Fishing restrictions. This means you can only fish from Midnight to 2:00 pm daily. All of the other sections of the Big Hole currently do “not” have any restrictions. Please give us a call if you have any questions 406-835-3474.
