The wind has died down here in Town, but fishing reports from the guides were awesome after yesterdays float, we are still fishing worms and stones mostly, midges if you want to get fancy. All of our rivers are fishing great and flows are looking awesome as well! Weather is looking cold for today unfortunately, but if you layer up well you shouldn't have a problem. make sure to wet your knots! Cheers!
Well, we got some snow today in Twin Bridges, and the wind is blowing a little hard. If you're gonna go fishing don't get bummed out, there are definitely places where the wind isn't as strong! All the Guides came back with pretty good reports last night and seemed very optimistic about fishing today! The The Big Hole is dropping steadily, flowing at about 3000 cfs at glen but has drastically dropped in temperature as well(water temp as of 08:00 was 33 degrees) but should warm up as the days go by. Clark C anyon reservoir is 100% full, but the Beav is still coming out of the dam at 24o cfs and ruby reservoir is about 99% full but the Ruby is still flowing at about 54 cfs. Fishing keeps getting better so don't wait 'til run off hits! Before you head out fill up a water bottle instead [...]
The wind is howling here in Twin Bridges today, unfortunately... But that doesn't mean stay inside and tie bugs, the fish are pretty hungry right now! The Big Hole has seen a good drop in water from yesterday and is flowing at about 3000 cfs and the Beav in town is starting to clear up! The Ruby is also still in prime condition as of today. Make sure to keep an eye out for Baetis and some smaller BWOs. Nymphing is still catching most of our fish, and dead drifting streamers have been effective when there is some cloud cover. If you're fishing streamers make sure to constantly change up colors 'til you crack the code! Cheers
We got a little bit of rain over the night, just enough to make the worm fishing better but not enough to blow the rivers! The Beav is still a little dirty in town but is running 176 cfs out of the dam. The Big Hole is fluctuating around 2700 cfs. David, Garey, and Charlie said fishing was better in the morning but slowed down in the afternoon. The sun is starting to make an appearance on town and hopefully it stays this way! Before you go out today make sure to grab a sharpie for quick fly color changes (its more effective than it sounds)!!! The fish in the picture came out of the Ruby a few days ago, and he ate an emerger, Cheers!
The weather cant get much better than it is today! We are seeing more bugs com off with this sun warming up the water. The rivers haven't changed much, but we are starting to see runoff make its appearance following this warm weather! fish are eating dries when the water has a good amount of visibility, the Big Hole and Beav are still a little off color, but the Ruby is clear as glass! Don't forget a couple of your favorite brews before you head out! Cheers
It has been a great week in South West Montana and it looks like the weather is going to stay that way! The Big Hole got a little water last night that bumped it to 3700 cfs but the Beaver head in town here is at 480 cfs and a little dirty, but they are still eating nymphs. The Ruby is still in perfect condition but is predicted to get overflow from the reservoir on may 10th! make sure you're fishing deep enough! Cheers
Today turned out to be a great day here in Twin Bridges, its 56 degrees and sunny! With this break in the weather the bugs have gone into overdrive and and the Beav and Ruby are still in great shape. The Big Hole is still recovering from the rain we had but is steadily dropping from 3700 cfs. make sure to have some parachute Adams and a couple BWO emerges before you head out! Cheers
After yesterdays warm weather causing a little snow melt and this mornings rain storm the Big hole bumped up to about 3,000 cfs but the ruby is still at 54cfs and the beav is at a steady 176 cfs. Worms and a blonde Pats Rubber leg is doing the trick right now on the Big Hole, but if you're on the Beav or the Ruby fishing smaller flies like a flashback Pheasant tail, a small psycho may or scuds should get the job done. Before you go out make sure your waders are dry if you are coming from out of state! Cheers!
Today is looking to be another great day in south west Montana today!! Our rivers are loving this weather, the Big Hole is at a happy 1540 cfs after a little bump of water, but the Beav (Beaverhead) is still at 175 cfs along with the Ruby at 54 cfs. Fish are definitely starting to look up after what I witnessed last night! The streamer fishing has been slow with this sun shining but the dry fly bite makes up for that. Nymphing when the fish aren't rising is your best bet right now, throwing smaller pheasant tails and stones. Fishing picks up mid morning (10:00-12:00) but slows down afterwards, although the fish are still eating all day! Big fish are on the prowl so make sure your knots are wet and your buddy (or yourself) has the net ready! Cheers!
The sun is shining here in Twin Bridges and the bugs are liking it! With a little bit of rain in the forecast for this weekend now is the time to get out and enjoy this awesome weather we are having! Rivers are still in very good shape and the fishing is getting exponentially better as the days go by! Looks like I'm going fishing this evening, and I hope you are too! If you're getting out tonight don't forget your floatant, and a buddy! See you on the water
