Fishing Conditions

August 10, 2022

The Big Hole has hoot owl restrictions on most of the river, however fishing in the very early mornings has been the best time to give it a shot. As always, make sure to bring a stream thermometer and quit fishing when the temperatures reach 68 degrees plus. Try fishing a Trico in the morning, then try a Hopper or a Spruce Moth until 2pm. (Hoot Owl Restrictions prohibit fishing after 2pm).

***There is a current Hoot Owl Fishing Restriction on this river, which means fishing is not allowed during the hours of 2pm-12am everyday; the restrictions are from the confluence with the Beaverhead up to lower Maidenrock, and from Dickie Bridge to the confluence of the North Fork of the Big Hole***
