Dry Fly Fishing Season
Big Hole River
With the start of the Mother’s Day Caddis hatch, dry fly fishing season on the Big Hole River has begun. The hatch, which was seen in the Maiden Rock area on May 29th, is late this year. Spring was slow to come to the northern Rockies due to cool temperatures and lingering winter.
Even with the cool and wet weather, spring fishing on the Big Hole has produced days of great fishing for big brown trout. Craig Jones of Great Divide Outfitters reports a day of poor weather and good fishing with sizeable browns up to 24″ caught. Sunrise Fly Shop’s Facebook page has photo after photo of nice trout caught during our wet spring.
