Fishing Conditions

November 20, 2018

Beaverhead- Pipe Organ up to the Dam is closed for the season. The winter midge hatches have been very good. 

Bitterroot/Blackfoot/Clarkfork/Rock Creek: It's time to put the dry fly boxes away and get out the nymphs and streamer boxes.

Canyon Ferry - The Brown trout still have a few in spawn. Mainly on the dam end of the Lake.  

Hauser/Holter - Your typical lake patterns such as a bugger/leech/streamer should get the job done pretty well. A balanced leech is always a good bet for fishing lakes. 

Dailey Lake- Begging to freeze

Hyalite- Beginning to freeze 


Cliff and Wade -  Begging to freeze

Quake Lake - The shores are starting to grow ice. Try streamers worked tight to the dead trees and off the drop offs.

Clark Canyon - No Reports

Hebgen- Trolling a sinking line has been the best way to target the fish.

Harrison Lake - No reports 


Ennis Lake - If you can get the right conditions, wind drift across the mouth of the Madison. Toss some streamers about 100 yards or so out from the shoreline of the rivers mouth.


Ponds Around Town - Begging to freeze
