We have the new Scott Centric  9 ft. 5 weights 905-4 and 9ft. 6 weight 906-4 fly rods in stock!

Looks like we are down to winter flows on the Beaverhead River. It has been a great year on the Beaverhead and the fish are very healthy moving into fall and winter. They have dropped the outflows of Clark Canyon Reservoir to 50 cfs. It is a wade fishing only proposition now on the Beaverhead. The river is fishing well and running clear. It is rather easy to identify where the fish are at these low flows. You will find hatches of Blue Winged Olives right now. Check out our Fall Special fishing packages.

Fall is in full swing in the Big Hole Valley. We are seeing the cottonwoods change to the vibrant yellow/orange and the brown trout are getting into their fall splendor.  Many of the sizable brown trout are getting aggressive towards streamers and nymphs right now. It is a spectacular time to be on the Big Hole and enjoy the cool crisp fall weather before the snow flies. Streamers in the black, olive and brown colors are working the best right now. Currently, you will find hatches of Blue Winged Olives and Mahogany Duns on the Big Hole River. Enjoy this great time of the year while the weather stays mild.

Today we have had rainy fall like weather in the Big Hole Valley. The rest of the week looks like perfect, dry and crisp fall like weather. The recent rain has the Big Hole on the rise, which is ideal for getting the river back up to average flows. The river is clear and the flow increase should get the brown trout active and willing to move to streamers. We had tremendous blue winged olive hatches today. Look for these hatches to continue into the week ahead and we should see some mahogany duns thrown into the mix.

The Beaverhead has slowed down dramatically recently. We are having tough fishing from the Dam down to barretts. The flows have dropped and the water coming out of the reservoir is off color and tons of moss is floating down stream. It is hard to fish anything other than a dry fly and maybe a streamer. If you throw any nymphs you will picking up a moss salad. Hopefully this improves but for now we suggest fishing elsewhere. Check out the new Scott Centric fly rod. We have them in stock and we are ready to ship them out.

The Big Hole is in the late summer/early fall splendor. You will find some trico’s in spot specific areas in the morning and Blue Winged Olives. We are having solid reports of hopper fishing in the afternoon heat on the lower Big Hole River and around the Melrose area. Streamers in the morning hours have been good with olive color patterns and black color patterns. Looks like the dry and warm weather will persist for the week, which will make for some great fishing opportunities.
