March Skwala Update
We had a significant warm up yesterday, which got the water temperatures into the mid 40’s. I spotted two adult skwalas on the water and it was go time. The skwala hatch has started on the Big Hole. From 2:00 yesterday till about 4:30 we had some nice dry fly fishing. The big fish were not rising but plenty of small fish were looking up. I would still give it some time for the big fish to key into the dry fly. This is the earliest we have ever seen skwala activity on the Big Hole. I would stick to droppers in the morning and then around 2:00 you can fish a single dry fly today unless the wind kicks up like it is supposed to. the visibility is still around 2 1/2 feet.
