The Big Hole is dropping and water clarity is three feet and tea colored. The nasty weather from last week has given way to high blue and afternoon cloud cover. The caddis have slowed down except for an evening egg laying event and we are starting to see some Grey Drakes and BWO during the cloudy times of the day. Still the best bet is nymphs and streamers fished tight.
The river is full of food now and the fish are fat. No big bugs yet but we have seen a few Golden Stones around. Had a nice bite last evening on a Black Magic in a #10, who knows why? We do not ask. Fish Ahead!
The Big Hole is big and starting to drop, but still clear. Cold weather has the bugs in the hiding mode, but the streamer fishing and deep nymph fishing has been pretty fair . The trout are in great shape and getting bigger by the day. Warmer weather will help the bugs and very soon the river will fish well.
