Beaverhead River Fishing Report

The Beaverhead River fishing report is fantastic lately. We have hatches of PMD’s, caddis, yellow sallies and some golden stones. Our guides have been doing very well from the dam down to Barretts. You will find fish up eating PMD’s and yellow sallies throughout the day. Nymph anglers have been hanging fish very well on PMD nymphs and yellow sally nymphs. This is the month to hit the Beaverhead river for the best dry fly activity of the year. We currently have guides open this month if you want to see this river in prime form.

Hoot Owl (2:00 p.m. – Midnight ) Fishing restrictions have been implemented on part of the Beaverhead River. From HWY 41 near East Bench Road to it’s confluence with the Big Hole River is on Hoot Owl Restrictions. This is not the section that we fish regularly. From the Dam down to Barretts park is open with no restrictions.
