Big Hole River Report

Info Sunrise Fly Shop - Friday, April 06, 2018

Spring fishing has started to get good on the Big Hole River. We have had some exciting fishing the last few days. In fact the dry fly fishing is picking up on Skwalas, Blue Winged Olives and midges. We have been starting the day subsurface with nymphs and streamers and then moving to a dry dropper or a single dry in the afternoon. The Big Hole has about 3 feet of visibility and conditions are right for the skwalla hatch to continue to improve. Give us a call for up to date details 406-835-FISH(3474) or head on over for some spring fishing. The last several days the 16 - 20 inch fish have started to feed and we have seen a nice age class willing to eat the skwala. 

Spring Special guided fishing details are here. Packages starting at $595 per person
