8/27/19 Beaverhead River Fishing Report
August 27th, 2019 Beaverhead River Fishing Report – Hoppers. Grasshoppers. Crickets.
Undoubtedly, you have heard about this summers hopper fishing, and the Beaverhead is at the top of the list. Quality trout on grasshopper patterns. Presentation has been key and with tight drifts there have been explosive strikes of the surface. Small hoppers in tannish, yellow, or pink tones with nice legs that make a nice commotion.
If the hopper bite is quiet, streamers have also been effective. For those looking to nymph, a small dark mayfly is choice, along with an attractor like a worm or a cranefly larvae. Getting down is key, so look for troughs through the moss and start there.
