Beaverhead River Fishing Report

Flows out of Clark Canyon Reservoir are currently on the drop. The outflow this morning is 672 cfs. We have had good fishing from Buffalo bridge down stream. Our best tactic has been nymphs and streamers. Nymphs of choice have been sow bugs, scuds and some small olive may fly nymphs. Streamers of choice have been colors in the olive or black zone. We haven’t seen much for hatches yet on the upper end of the Beaverhead River. Fish are healthy and we have been catching many in the size range of 18 inches – 22 inches so far this season.

The rain we have had the last 48 hours has brought the river on the rise. We had a fantastic day on the upper Big Hole yesterday. The clarity remains at about 18 inches on the upper Big Hole above the Wise River. The clarity here around Melrose is only about 6 inches. The Big Hole will fish above the Wise River today but I would stay off the Big Hole below the Wise River unless you just want a fast boat ride. We had the most success for large fish yesterday on San Juan Worms and streamers. It should be another big fish day on the upper Big Hole.
