Beaverhead River Fishing Report

Fishing on the Beaverhead River has been pretty good lately. We have seen blue winged olives hatching and the Caddis will start in the next week or two. Streamer fishing on the lower end has been good on J.J.’s and black dungeons. We have seen very nice 16 inch – 18 inch brown trout in the Sections below Pipe Organ Bridge. These fish wintered well and it should be a nice fish year on the Beaverhead River. We are excited for the this month and the summer to come!

Reminder: The Dam down to Pipe Organ bridge is closed through May 17th. The opener on the upper Beaverhead is May 18th. Clark Canyon Reservoir is full and outflows are hovering at 250cfs. It is going to be a fabulous water year on the Beaverhead.
