Beaverhead River Fishing Report

The Beaverhead continues to produce fantastic fish this year for us. Flows out of Clark Canyon Reservoir have come up substantially due to irrigation needs in the valley. Flows out of Clark Canyon Reservoir are sitting around 680cfs this morning. Wade fishing will be very tough right now, so your best option is floating. With these higher flows the best dry fly fishing will be near the dam and the further down stream you go the dry fly opportunity will be tougher. We have hatches of PMD’s, Caddis and Yellow Sallies. Look for hopper fishing to pick up in a few weeks. The upper Beaverhead has had great dry fly opportunities on PMD’s and the Caddis fishing in the evening has been fantastic.

January Update – Simms Sale items – Spring Special

It is late January here on the Beaverhead River. The Beaverhead River is one of the few fisheries that you are able to fish year round. Since it is a tailwater fishery and has a spring fed influence it stays rather ice free on the upper reaches. Please remember the upper reaches are closed from Clark Canyon Dam down to Pipe Organ Bridge until the 3rd Saturday of May. Currently, you can fish from Pipe Organ Bridge down stream to Barretts park. As far as snowpack goes we are seeing an average winter so far. Clark Canyon Reservoir is currently 82 % full. The Outflow from Clark Canyon reservoir is 88 cfs and the inflow is 182 cfs. When spring runoff hits we might see a full reservoir this year. This all bodes well for a great season on the Beaverhead River.

It is time to start thinking about Spring fishing. We are running our very popular Spring Special again. Here is the link for information on the Spring Special.
