Big Hole comin' round

The Big Hole is in pretty sweet shape right now and should keep getting better as flows drop and water temperatures climb.  Fish are still holding in the slow and deep but they are also feeding well.  When you find them take your time and fish out the area...there can be long droughts between good holding water that is deep enough and walking speed or less.  Nymphing with Pat's Rubberlegs and Worms has given us the most success, but these same fish will eat streamers too. Water temps have remained fairly low but the Melrose gauge shows them above 44 degrees today, which should bring about real bug activity.  Be on the lookout now for Skwalas, March Browns, BWO's and plenty of midges.
