Big Hole River Fishing Report

We have been enjoying fantastic fishing on the Big Hole recently. Currently the flows around Melrose are 1,230 cfs. We are having hatches of PMD’s, Caddis, Yellow Sallies and nocturnal stoneflies. Dry fly fishing in the early morning hours on nocturnal stoneflies has been good and then PMD’s around 10:00 am have had the fish looking up. You will have Yellow Sallies midd day and Caddis in the evening. The streamer fishing in the shallow riffles are producing great brown trout right now through the day and even in the bright sun.

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.
