Big Hole River Fishing Report
Near Melrose, MT
Cold temperatures are in the forecast for the rest of the week. This past weekend we had one nice warm day that tempted people to get the dust off the boat. High temperatures the rest of the week are in the 30's with some snow in the forecast. The Big Hole is floatable from Melrose down stream. Water temperatures are in the lower 30's and the trout are in their winter holes. Nymphing the deep tail outs is going to be the best tactic right now. Nymphs of choice are Pat's Stones in size #8 , San Juan Worms, and midges. Our Big Hole River guides are ready for the Spring Skwala fishing in April. When reports improve we will let you know. The ice is off the Glen gauge and we are recording a Big Hole River flow of 652 cfs in Glen.
Fall fishing has been solid. The fishing is definitely better on overcast days, but you can still find a fish or two on the bright sunny days. Slow stripping or dead drifting streamers and nymphing stone fly nymphs and San Juan worms have been the most successful techniques. Yellow and brown have been the color of choice for the streamers.
With night temps frequently falling into the mid 20's, there is no need to be on the water early. Let the water warm up a bit before you start your day of fishing.
We will be closing for the season on 10/25/2013, so come fish the Big Hole before the season is officially over.
