Big Hole River Fishing Report,  Skwala Hatch Update

Big Hole River Fishing Report

The Big Hole River is in great spring time shape. Clarity is 3 feet today and fishing has been good. We have had Skwalla dry fly fishing in the afternoons below Melrose. As the water warms we should see skwalla activity up in the Maiden Rock Canyon any day now. We have been fishing a skwalla dry with about a 2 foot dropper in the morning and then fishing single dries in the afternoons below Melrose. Above Melrose it is mainly still a nymph and streamer game. Our best streamers have been dark colors and getting them on the bottom of the run. Time to get out there while this good spring opportunity is upon us.
