Fishing is up and down as the rivers are on the rise again. Big Hole at about 3600 cfs or so. Had a very good day on the Big Hole from Dead Zone to Brownes Bridge with lots of big brown trout. Picky what they would eat but with the right thing, game on.
Next day fished with friend from Notch Bottom to Pennington on the Big Hole and it was very hard fishing. Got a few but nothing to write home about. And then it got dark, then it got cold and then we watched the sleet and rain coming toward us. It went from shirtsleeve to freezing in about 2 minutes.
Saw the first calf moose and the cow. Calf looked to be hours old! On an island in the Big Hole. They do like their privacy.
a few more
looks inviting! wish I was traveling west this summer....
nice pics, maybe still
Nice. Don't let all the water drain out of the tub before I get out there.
Fished the Big Hole today over by Melrose and it was good fishing with water at 3530 and vis fine. The fish at these flows are in soft insides are quiet places.
More rain last night and it has been cloudy all day so we should be saving some water. Optimism is a necessity for a person that fishes.
Yes...been watching Canyon Ferry fill up. It just passed 90%. Hopefully the continued weather pattern will get it to 97%.
