Big Hole River 5060 cfs
We had a pretty good day with Art and Jim. They preferred to throw dry flies so we worked them for a couple hours. The only real success was in back waters where we found some sippers. I finally convinced them to switch to streamers and nymphs. Gotta do what ya gotta do. No big fish but several in the 16 to 18 inch range. At one point Art made 3 casts and caught 3 fish over 16 inches. That’s not bad fishing in 5000 cfs.
Forecast for tonight and the next few days is for rain, rain and more rain. Cool temps also. As for what the river will do? I refuse to answer on the grounds it may incriminate me. In other words, I don’t know. There is still a hell of a lot of snow in the high country but with the cool temps it may come off slowly.
