Fishing Conditions

September 29, 2022

Although the water temperatures in the Big Hole have come down significantly, the Big Hole remains closed due to low water causing extremely stressful conditions for trout. We can expect this closure to last until we see an increase in flows which might not be until the end of October. 

***Full Closure is in place from the confluence with the Jefferson to Tony Shoonan FAS (Notch Bottom), and from Dickie Bridge to Skaginaw Bridge. Also keep in mind Maidenrock BLM down to Brownes Bridge is completely closed to fishing starting October 1st***
