Big Hole River 5810 cfs–Maidenrock

The weather is lousy and the river is still running bank full but the streamer action is great.
Some fisherman said olive was the color of choice and they had lots of fish on that pattern. Others said yellow was the way to go as the fish were slammin it.
Another fisherman came in and said “let me have some more of those bacon and eggs patterns as that’s the ticket today”.

Unsettled conditions are going to be here for a while yet but we have lots of water.

Nez Perce ridge is pretty white with fresh snow which is about 7000 feet.

You guys making comments about the lack of summer better be careful as the global warming guys are pretty touchy about that subject.

As for the salmon flies?????


  1. I have a new theory, Al: Global Warming was caused by Republicans occupying the Whitehouse.

  2. The big hole has come and gone. She put up a show and is now dropping into salmon fly water levels. Let the sun shine come and the big bugs along with it.

  3. I really like and appreciate your blog post.Thanks Again. Great.
