The upper Big Hole River continues to drop and the fishing yesterday was stellar. It should be another great day on the upper Big Hole. Clarity is around 2 feet up there and once you get above the Wise River and Deep Creek the volume of water decreases and your prospecting on the banks becomes very manageable at these high flows. We have caddis hatching in the Melrose section but flows are rather high for any dry fly fishing. Streamers and San Juan worms has been producing the best fishing on the upper Big Hole River. Flows at the Mudd Creek gauge continue to drop and the fishing will remain good up there until the next bump in flows. Our Big Hole River guides continue to produce huge brown trout this spring.
