Time to get creative

The Big Hole is closed from F&G just above Melrose all the way to the confluence of the Beaverhead. When is the last time you cast tiny dries at dozens of rising fish? Maybe go look up above the little canyon...... just sayin'. The ENTIRE Jefferson is closed until further notice. The ENTIRE Yellowstone is closed due to a parasitic fish kill. Doom and Gloom. It's so awful. Oh my god. What are we going to do? Get creative. Use your brain, a gps, a story from the bar, anything. The Beaverhead is still fishing great - it is hopper time. The stillwaters, Clark Canyon and Ennis Lake are offering gulpers and good to great carp fishing. The entire Ruby is fishing well, as is the Madison. While clearly this is not THE BEST time to fish Montana, it is arguably one of the more enjoyable. Rather than getting in line up at the dam on the Beaverhead - it's time to jump in the truck and hot spot around a bit. A little exercise never hurt anyone.
