Big Hole River 3910 cfs—–Maidenrock
Wow the last couple reports I just got, and from different stretches of river were nothing less than awesome. If I didn’t personally know these guys, and a couple guide for me, I would be questioning some of their tales. Big streamers again were the choice of the day. Biggest fish was a 22 inch brown. The canyon produced lots of fish in the 16 to 18 inch range but no big ones.
Doug said mid afternoon they ran into a march brown hatch and had really good top water action in a couple pools for about an hour.
Simmons reported catching his first grayling on top water.
The river seems to be leveling off for the time being. Visibility is getting better and is about 2 feet now. We are not getting all that rain they are further east of the Divide. Forecast for the next week is the same with cool, cloudy, rainy conditions.
