A Few Salmon Flies on the Big Hole

There was not a significant number of bugs that hatched in the Melrose area today..  They might crawl out in numbers tonight, who knows?  Cooler, cloudier weather over the next couple of days will either stall the hatch or provide some good fishing. Please treat the fish that you do catch with the utmost respect, and release them promptly and delicately.

The Beaverhead is moving some water at 692 cfs out of the dam today.  Rain forecast for tomorrow, will hopefully be followed up by a reduction in flows.  Small split backs, sowbugs, and worms are all working depending upon where you are on the river.
