There is a slight hint of fall in the air. In fact I broke out the waders yesterday and you will need them today. The overcast weather has produced some fantastic dry fly fishing. We have Tricos, big PMD’s and some baetis out there right now. We did well with a #12 mahogany cripple yesterday and #10 Rocky Mountain Mint. The streamer fishing has started to pick up just like it should with the cooler overcast weather. Small flying ant’s have also been getting fish on the surface. Great flows and good fishing right now on the Big Hole. Our Big Hole River guides have been fishing the Divide sections and also down to Notch bottom.
