We’ve entered the window of fishing in Southwest Montana when we have multiple rivers fishing extremely well. Our guides are coming back each evening with tales of great fishing no matter where they went that day. Salmon flies on the Big Hole, big fish on the Beaverhead, and the Jefferson is fishing well.
The Big Hole saw a lot of boat traffic this past weekend, but the crowds have thinned and the fishing is getting even better. If you witness a cloudy day there this time of year, you’ll see the some of the very best fishing that Montana has to offer.
The Beaverhead is getting better each day, and we should start to see PMDs very soon. Those in the know, understand that this kicks off a run of some amazing fishing on this great tailwater. Right now, small sow bugs and a few small mayfly patterns are producing above High Bridge, with worms, sow bugs, and a bunch of other bugs producing fish downstream.
We’ve dropped our shuttle prices on the Beaverhead to twenty dollars. Stop in to say hello, and look at our well stocked supply of great bugs!
