Peak Fly Fishing Season at Big Hole Lodge

August is prime time for fly fishing at Big Hole Lodge in Montana, presenting an exceptional opportunity for anglers. During this period, the Big Hole River becomes a hotspot for fishing with tiny Trico flies, targeting the river's large trout. These miniature mayflies are key for those aiming to join the prestigious 20/20 Club, which celebrates the achievement of catching a fish over 20 inches with a size 20 (or smaller) fly. Besides the challenging Trico flies, anglers can also enjoy fishing with hopper patterns and other terrestrials, offering a varied fishing experience.

Big Hole Lodge currently has limited availability for this peak season, with rods open for the weeks of:

August 11-17: 5 rods
August 18-24: 4 rods
August 25-31: 5 rods
September 1-7: 4 rods

Spaces are expected to fill quickly, so interested parties are encouraged to reserve their spot promptly. Big Hole Lodge is clearly defined as one of the great fly fishing destinations in North America. The wild trophy trout fishing possibilities are unmatched in the West, along with the unpressured fishing experience of Southwestern Montana. This Orvis-Endorsed Lodge is nestled in a magnificent wilderness setting in the Pioneer Mountains with a beautiful trout stream at its doorstep. Our returning guests have raved about the well-prepared meals, the attractive accommodations, and the exceptional guides.
