Great Start to May but Still Waiting for Mother's Day Caddis

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Thursday, May 10, 2012

The last week we have seen some stellar fishing on the Big Hole.  We are not talking dries yet, but the spring streamer bite has been fantastic.  Dropping water flows, the Big Hole is tea color, and the fish are looking for the big meals.  We have been fishing river wide right now.  The Divide to Notch section has been keeping our guides hooked up all day with nice fish and the occasional brute.  Below is a nice 22 inch brown that was caught above Glen.    



The upper Big Hole has been hot and cold.  I had a stellar day last week with several nice healthy 18 to 22 inch browns on slow stripped streamers.   But we have also had a number of  days where we have had  low numbers of fish landed.  It has been much better on the upper river when you have overcast  weather.  Below is a nice brown caught on a skwalla dry below Deep Creek on the upper Big Hole.
