Fishing Conditions

May 1, 2021

Beaverhead-   Scuds, Sow bugs, and midges are the go to's. Remember fishing from Clark Canyon dam to Pipe Organ FAS is closed until the third Saturday in May. 

Bitterroot/Clark Fork/Rock Creek- The bitterroot is on, skwalas are going and the time is now!

Canyon Ferry -  This is a good place to be right now. The fish are on the move and some days have been stellar!

Hauser/Holter - No reports. The lakes are thawing, and fishing should be getting good!

Dailey Lake- The lake is thawed, fishing has been alright. Stripping a leach has been productive.

Hyalite- The road up to Hyalite is closed until May 16th, but you can still walk up and fish the creek. General attractor nymphs such as worms, lil spankers and pheasant tails will get the job done. 

Cliff and Wade - Frozen

Quake Lake - Frozen

Clark Canyon - Thawed and fishing well. 

Hebgen- Frozen

Harrison Lake - Thawed and fishing. Watch for high winds!

Ennis Lake- Thawed out but has been too windy to fish as of late. If you find a calm day, the leech bite has been decent. 

Ponds Around Town - A great place to take the kids to catch a few bluegill and rainbow.
