Nocturnal Stoneflies

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Friday, July 22, 2011

Fishing in Southwest Montana has remained great.  We have enjoyed the dropping water.  The Big Hole is flowing at 2310cfs today.  Dry fly fishing has been heating up on the Big Hole River.  We have done well with various chubby patterns in the mornings and evenings for the nocturnal stones hatching.  The mid day fishing has varied with the weather.  If it is overcast keep the large dries on, if you have bright sun stick with the dry dropper set up.  Copper John's, lightning bugs, and prince nymphs have been doing well in the shallow riffle water.  The caddis hatches in the evenings have been stellar.  we have been catching some great trout in the past few weeks here.
