Big Hole 292 cfs Beaverhead 163 cfs Jefferson 683 cfs
It was good to be back on the Big Hole yesterday and it did not let us down. It more than made up for the miserable day we had on the Beav. the day before. Jimmy and Paul caught ten fish before we even got in the boat. It was cold, cloudy and windy in the morning but the fish were nailing streamers. I told the guys to start fishing while I got the boat ready and within a couple minutes they both had a fish on. As I watched, Jimmy made three casts and had a hookup on each cast. The weather was cold but the fishing was hot. It slowed down a bit when the sun came out but soon after some tricos started to come off and the fish were coming up for them. After the trico action the rest of the day was very good with may fly and small hopper patterns. There were only a few other wade fisherman on the river in the canyon and that kind of surprised me.
Forecast for the rest of the week is for warm temps. and partly cloudy.
For best results use streamers early and late in the day and may fly’s during the middle and if your not catching fish then, something is drastically wrong.
