Beaverhead River Fishing Report


Beaverhead River Fishing Report

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Saturday, June 17, 2017

The Beaverhead is fishing very well. The water temperatures have warmed up, which has created more bug activity. We have PMD's and Caddis hatching right now on the Beaverhead. The flow out of the dam is 309 cfs. PMD dry fly fishing should be  starting any day now. Our Beaverhead River guides have been doing best nymphing and some streamer fishing on the overcast days.

Beaverhead River Fishing Report

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Saturday, June 03, 2017

We are lucky to have the Beaverhead River in our backyard. Unlike the Big Hole, the Beaverhead is running clear below the dam. The tough part is that the river is rising daily. Once they stop raising the flows out of the reservoir and stabilize the river it will fish more consistently. We have been guiding on it daily and some days have been better then others. Today the outflow is 494 cfs, which is a great floating lever. We have done well on nymphs and streamers. 

Recommended Flies: #18 Ray Charles; #16 Scud Tan; #18 Zebra Midge; #12 San Juan Worm; #18 Sow Bug Tan/Pink; #18 Micro Mayfly #18 Split Back PMD
