Big Hole Fishing Report for May 8th

CFS: around 2800 at Divide

Dan and Marty needed to get out of the fly shop and do some field testing and the Big Hole River was the choice. We decided to put Marty’s drift boat in above Sportman’s Park and float down to Jerry Creek, which is a 16 or 17 mile float. I had some of my new streamer patterns to test…these babies are 9” long and triple jointed! The weather was a strong mix of snow flurries and sunshine. The fish never really turned on to the streamer bite but they did eat the Delektable™ Hurless Stones in Olive and Gray in 3 wade fishing spots. With the river on the rise, no bug hatch and snow flurries, we felt fortunate to score in double digit fish numbers. All in all a fabulous day to be out floating one of our rivers in southwest Montana. Dan Delekta
