No April Foolin’
Sunrise Fly Shop is opening it’s doors for the 2011 fishing season On Friday April 1st. We are looking forward to a great season in Southwest Montana. Snowpack in the Big Hole River and Beaverhead River drainage are well over 115% of normal. Currently, Clark Canyon reservoir is over 90% full. The season starts with the Skwala hatch on the Big Hole River. We will keep you up to date throughout the spring to the progress of the hatch. Look for an updated Big Hole River fishing report starting April 1st.
We have already had some good fishing on the Big Hole below Melrose, it has just been darn cold still. The river is ice free below Melrose and once we get a few more day time highs in the upper 40’s to lower 50’s fishing will improve. Get that gear ready, and start to think about booking your trip with our Big Hole River guides and Southwest Montana River Guides at the Sunrise Fly Shop.
