Big Hole River Fishing Report


Big Hole River Fishing Report

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Monday, September 03, 2018

Late summer fishing has been holding up pretty well on the Big Hole River. With the cool crisp mornings and pleasant afternoon warm up, we are seeing trico hatches in the mornings and some great hopper fishing on the Big Hole in the afternoon. On some of the damp overcast days you will find fall baetis hatches and the opportunity for trout to take streamers rather aggressively. Flows remain above average and the entire Big Hole River is in great shape for September fishing. Our Big Hole River guides have been floating from the Jerry Creek stretches down to the Notch bottom stretches of the Big Hole. It's time to get the last of the hopper fishing before fall fishing takes over.
