Big Hole River 2380 cfs—Maidenrock

At times today a person might have thought it was January the way the snow squalls were coming through. There would be a little break and then as we looked up toward Nez Perce ridge another would be coming and they came in fast.

This however unpleasant did not hurt the fishing at all. Streamer action was good. Jim caught the most fish but Wally caught the biggest. We got off the river a little early as all of us, yes including me were just about froze.

There was a little baetis action with just a couple fish coming up for them.

Late yesterday conditions were much better and we got some nice fish on skwala patterns on top. Tried it today just for the hell of it and got a whopping 7 incher.

Forecast for tomorrow are for much more pleasant weather.

I’m not a native to these parts but I have been here many a year and I really don’t remember a spring this cold—-which is why I’m still not sold on this global warming thing.
