Clark Canyon Outflow is currently 435 cfs. the Beaverhead is running at a nice flow but you will have floating and submerged moss on the upper end of the river. From the dam down to high bridge is difficult to fish subsurface due to the moss. The lower stretches of the beaverhead are fishing very well on hoppers. We have done well below Henneberry and Grasshopper creek on the terrestrials. Ants, hoppers and some caddis are hatching on the beaverhead. Clarity has remained good on the beaverhead.

The Beaverhead continues to fish very well for us. The Outflow from Clark Canyon Reservoir is 619cfs. You will find hatches of PMD's some yellow sallies and the trico's will be hatching any day now. Nymphing has been getting tough below the dam due to moss. Once you get below High Bridge the nymphing is much easier due to the lack of moss in that section of the river. You will find some flying ants along stretches of the Beaverhead River. We currently do not have any restrictions on the beaverhead River from the dam down to Barretts.
