Big Hole River Fishing Report


Big Hole River Fishing Report

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Fishing on the Big Hole is starting to heat up again. We have been seeing the first signs of Spruce Moths on the water. The Spruce Moth is not widespread on the river but several banks in the canyon are seeing activity on the surface. Besides spruce moths we are seeing PMD's, Yellow Sallies, and some caddis. The best fishing is from about 8:00 am - 3:00pm. If you have a warm afternoon please watch the water temperature. If temperatures reach 68 degrees please give the trout a break. Flows remain pretty good for this time of year on the Big Hole. The Maiden rock gauge is 762cfs and the Melrose gauge is 634cfs.
