Shaping Up

Big Hole River 4730 cfs

The river is dropping as fast as it was rising last week. If your one of those who left the country a few days ago thinking the river would be blown out for awhile, you might have left too soon.

We floated the upper river today and there wasn’t much action on top but we got some really nice ones on streamers. We tried nymphs for about two minutes and they wouldn’t hit em so it was on to streamers. There were a few scattered salmon fly’s along that stretch but very little action on top.

    Just wanted to say thanks for posting this info — I referenced it a lot for a June 1 trip (great fun, nice fish, my pal’s 11 year old caught 7 nice trout) and have been referring to your site every day since the weekend, as I have a trip tomorrow. Just wanted to say great to have insightful reports that manage to capture the mood of the day without getting into too much detail — or leaving too much out. Much appreciated!
