Flows have come down a bit with these last few days of cooler weather and a decrease in discharge out of Hebgen Lake which leads me to believe the next few days will be real good for fishing. Current flow below Hebgen is about 1,500 c.f.s. and it’s up to 1,870 at Kirby. Current forecast is showing highs in the low 60s and upper 50s for the next few days.
We expect some real good streamer fishing as long as flows stay somewhat consistent. A number of different flies worked these two weeks including Stonefly Nymphs, some streamers, and Eggs. Experimenting with amounts of weight helped. Some specific patterns were Delektable Mega Princes, Delektable Hurless, Pat’s Rubberlegs, and the Roe Egg and the Glow Bug Egg in Orange and Tangerine. We have enjoyed the company of Project Healing Waters Vets at our lodge this week. Thank you to Bob Frey and Michael Gerhart for all the extra help with the planning and cooking.
