Just got our first morning report today of the Big Hole River Salmonfly Hatch. Fantastic fishing from lower Maiden Rock (FWP) to Brownes bridge. We have salmonflies from Glen all the way up past Melrose. We do not have a report of any adult Salmonflies in the Maiden Rock Canyon yet or the Dewey Canyon. We have been throwing the Salmonfly dry with a Pat’s Stone nymph below it. Some of our best patterns lately has been the Cat Puke, and Mutant Stone.
