Salmonflies on the Big Hole River

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Thursday, June 06, 2013

Let the madness begin.  We saw our first Salmonflies on the Big Hole River this morning.  We had some shucks at the Glen Bridge.  The hatch will slowly start to progress on the lower Big Hole.  Water flows and clarity are perfect for a fabulous hatch this year.  It's time to start chucking the big bugs on the fast banks and some of the biggest brown trout will be eating on the surface.  We will keep you updated on the hatch and where the bugs are.    

 

A Salmonfly Hatch to Remember

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Tuesday, June 12, 2012

We are two days into the Salmonfly Hatch and the big bugs can be found from Glen to Lower Maiden Rock.  Eric gave me a report this afternoon while he was guiding that willlows were bending over because there were so many salmonflies on them.  Dry fly fishing was great from the morning hours till about 2:30 today on Salmonflies.  The hatch should slowly work it's way up the river this week.  With cooler day time temperatures the hatch should slowly progress, which is a perfect scenario.  Dropping and clearing water has made for perfect conditions for a great Big Hole Salmonfly Hatch this year. We will get some photos up here soon.
