The Upper Big Hole River is generally known for its slower moving water bordered by soft grassy meadows and lodge pole pine forests. Being the first section of the river to ice over in the fall and the last section to become ice free in the spring, the upper Big Hole has a shorter fishing season than the other two sections, but that doesnt mean that it is any less of a fishery. With slower moving water, numerous grassy islands, and deeply cut banks, this section was made for dry fly fishing. Whether its casting a #4 Salmon Fly at the bank or delicately presenting a PMD to a pod of rising fish, the upper Big Hole is dry fly anglers dream. This section also provides your best opportunity for the Big Hole River Grand Slam. A grand slam is achieved when an angler catches a brown trout, a rainbow trout, a brook trout, a cutthroat and an arctic grayling in the same day.

The reality is that you can over-complicate the game as much as you want. Yes, here, once the fish are selective (not to be taken on the fly that is caught) — but in most cases, you can cheat with a selection of about two or three flies properly exploited.

After reviewing the External Links guidelines, I removed the Fly Fishing forum links. They are useful but were not appropriate. –Mike Cline 21:48, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

However, there was nothing to prevent the successful employment of wet flies on these chalk streams, as George Edward MacKenzie Skues proved with his nymph and wet fly techniques. To the horror of dry-fly purists, Skues later wrote two books, Minor Tactics of the Chalk Stream, and The Way of a Trout with a Fly, which greatly influenced the development of wet fly fishing.
