The ice has just come off the upper Big Hole River. We had a massive surge of water yesterday coming downstream. The river went from about 1,000cfs to over 3,000cfs in one huge surge. With this said, the river is not fishing and we will keep you updated when things improve. It will take sometime for the river to clear up and start fishing again. Check with us and we will keep you posted.
Flows have increased out of Clark Canyon Reservoir. We now have a flow of 520cfs out of the dam. The water is still pretty cold so the hatches have not started up near the dam. We have been manly nymphing on the Beaverhead River. The fish have been actively eating and we have seen some nice ones to start the month. We have been staying above Grasshopper Creek. The Beaverhead River fishing report has been consistent lately and the fishing is improving with the increase in flows out of the reservoir.
