October continues to produce some great fishing on the Big Hole.
October continues to produce some great fishing on the Big Hole. We are having peak fall colors on the river and the brown trout have matching colors of the cottonwoods and willows. Nymphing and streamers are the game on the Big Hole right now. In the bright sun the last several days nymphing has been the ticket. We have overcast weather today and for the next several days so the streamers will turn on again. For streamers I suggest J,J.’s, Trevor Sculpin’s, Mini loop Sculpin’s and Sparkle Minnows. Please respect the spawning brown trout and do not step on the spawning beds.
