The willows were drooping over from the weight of the Salmonflies yesterday. It is going to be a great day out there. We have Salmonflies, Golden Stones, Caddis, PMD’s and Drakes hatching. The best Salmonfly hatch on the Big Hole is currently from Jerry Creek all the way down to Melrose. We have had good reports today in the Maiden Rock Canyon and the Dewey Canyon with great success on the Salmonfly dry flies. With the dropping water, and warming trend the river will continue to fish very well.
