Here’s the latest Big Hole River (near Melrose) fishing report from Sunrise Fly Shop as of April 8, 2021:
The ice has just come off the upper Big Hole River. We had a massive surge of water yesterday coming downstream. The river went from about 1,000cfs to over 3,000cfs in one huge surge. With this said, the river is not fishing and we will keep you updated when things improve. It will take sometime for the river to clear up and start fishing again. Check with us and we will keep you posted.
