Fishing Conditions

June 24, 2019

The Jefferson had a couple day window where fishing could have been ok. However, the water is starting to warm up substantially. The moss is getting bad and the fish are in survival mode. This one may be best left alone until fall. That being said, the bighole and beaverhead are fishing better than I have seen in years. The beaverhead is producing some monsters from the dam down and the salmon flies are making their pressence known on the bighole. These two headwater streams are great places to head for the next few weeks!
