Ice Jam

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Tuesday, April 03, 2012

The Big Hole River had a few large ice jams break free during the first couple days of April.  In Melrose, the flows jumped from 3000 cfs to nearly 6000 cfs in only an hour.  It was an impressive sight to see all of the ice and debris floating down the river.

On the Upper Big Hole near East Bank, numerous car-sized chunks of ice were deposited on the banks.

As of 5:00 PM on April 3rd, the Big Hole is back down to 2200 cfs and starting to clear.  We will continue to keep you updated as the river comes back into shape.
