Fall Fishing On The Big Hole River

Fall is here and the fishing on the Big Hole has been very good. We are enjoying the above average river flows and cool water temperatures to start September. The willows and some of the cottonwoods are starting to turn into autumn splendor. We have some trico’s hatching in the late morning hours on the Big Hole. On moist days you will find Blue Winged Olives, and some Mahogany Dun’s on the water. Hopper activity is still in play on the Lower Big Hole River.

The Burma Road near Notch Bottom had a washout due to a rainstorm. The section of the Burma road from the Glen Bridge down to Pennington Bridge is closed to thru traffic until they fix the washout. You can float fish to Glen but you will not be able to fish below Glen due to the road being closed. We will keep you posted when the road re-opens.
