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