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 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.

The recent heat wave has the Big Hole on "Hoot-Owl" restrictions on certain sections of the River. Read in detail below to find out where the "Hoot-Owl" closes are located.

Big Hole River Report

The Big Hole is in a transition period from PMD's and caddis to terrestrials and Trico's. We are seeing some PMD's in the morning hours hatching. The hopper fishing below Melrose has been good. We are fishing small hoppers and ant patterns in the size #14, #12 and #10 range. Trico's have been spotted on some days below Divide. Look for the trico hatch to thicken up this coming week. Streamers fishing and nymphing in the shallow riffle has remained productive for our guides. Spruce Moth's have not been spotted yet but we should start to see them soon. Flows have remained fantastic lately on the Big Hole. We are still using drift boats from Divide down stream.

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.

Big Hole River Fishing Report

The Big Hole is fishing very well right now. We are seeing flows around 1,700cfs in Melrose today. The lower stretches of the river are seeing nocturnal stoneflies hatching, PMD's, Caddis and Yellow Sallies. The best opportunity for stone fly dries is getting out early in the morning or late in the evening on the lower river. We should to see nocturnal stoneflies in the coming week up in the Maiden Rock Canyon. Streamers have been working very well in the shallow fast riffles. Sculpin and minnow patterns are working well for streamers. You will find pods of fish rising to PMD's in the morning hours and caddis in the evenings. River conditions are ideal right now for great fishing on the Big Hole.

Big Hole River Fishing Report

Here we are in July and the Big Hole is over 4,000cfs. June was a rollercoaster month and we are looking forward to dropping flows on the Big Hole River. The river has crested from this last rain/snow event. It looks like the weather is going to dry out and the Big Hole will be in fantastic shape for the month of July. We have hatches of Golden Stone's, PMD's, Caddis, Drakes and Yellow Sallies. When conditions are right the dry fly fishing the next several days should be stellar. The streamer fisherman are excited having these high flows to chuck streamers. Look for the Big Hole to continue to drop and fishing to get very good from Maiden Rock down stream.

Big Hole River Salmonfly Hatch Update

The Big Hole has been fishing fantastic lately. The Salmonfly hatch has not let us down one bit. Some of the best dry fly fishing of the year has been had lately depending on the time of day and the stretch of river that you are on. You will find Salmonflies and golden stones hatching below East Bank and all the way down into the Maiden Rock Canyon. We also have PMD's and caddis hatching throughout the day. Streamers have also been good in the evening hours. Looks like we are getting moisture early this week and then some drier weather later in the week. The river is currently at a stable flow and visibility is around 4 feet.
