The Big Hole River fishing report continues to be very good from our guides. We have hatches of Golden Stones, PMD’s, Yellow Sallies and Caddis. The best dry fly fishing has been in the morning and tapering off around 2:00 unless you get some cloud cover in the afternoons. If you need to get down with a nymph dropper in the afternoon the fast riffle water about two feet deep is packed with trout right now. We have been staying hooked up in the riffles with a size #8 Pat’s Stone and a red copper John or a Batman nymph. Nocturnal Stone Flies are around and the fish are keyed into them at the right time of day.
