Bitter Cold and Snowpack update: Big Hole River

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Wednesday, February 05, 2014

We are in the middle of a severe cold snap here in Southwest Montana.  Today the high was -12 and the windchill factor was in the -30's.  Besides the cold weather we have the latest snowpack reading to give you.  The Big Hole River drainage is sitting at around 90% of normal snowpack.  We still have two months to gain significant snowpack.  Typically our heaviest snow occurs in March.  We are happy with the 90% reading but we can always use more.  Most drainages in Southwest Montana are reading about 90% of normal for this date in time.  One thing you will want to check out in your hometown this winter is the Fly Fishing Film Tour.  Check out the schedule here.  We are inching closer to spring and we will continue to run our Spring Special this season.  Also our website is currently under construction and we are launching an entirely new website hopefully in the next week.  Stay tuned for a new look!
