I made another trip to Anaconda, Montana, the second one this year. It was great seeing my wife’s family again, and they were kind enough to show me some new water to try out with my fly rod. We spent one day checking out the Big Hole River, which is just over the hill from Anaconda. This is a fairly big river a popular one to float with drift boats. The river is really too low at this time of year to float, and I was shown some easy water to wade. I did find a couple of holes deep enough to hold fish, and did see some feeding on the surface. I managed to find a fly they liked, but they turned out to be whitefish. I talked to some other anglers that had the same luck, but one caught a nice grayling. One thing to note about the Big Hole, which is known for good brown trout fishing, is that access along it is excellent. There are many good public accesses on very good water. Once again, I had the best fishing on some of the small stream that flows through Anaconda, Warm Springs Creek, which produced some beautiful cutthroat. My brother-in-law, Ed Heim, caught a nice brown on it, too.
