Big Hole river Fishing Report

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Dry fly fishing on the Big Hole River has been pretty good lately. It has been so good that our guides haven't even been putting a nymph dropper below the dry fly. In the morning around 9 am you will find Spruce Moths. Then around 11 am the tricos will be filling the recipe. From 1 pm on we have been throwing hoppers with some nice success. You will find the Spruce Moth's from Jerry Creek down into the Maiden Rock Canyon. Streamers have been working well in the shallow fast riffles. The color of choice for streamers has been olive or tan lately.
