1380 CFS @ Gateway - Salmonflies continue to the be story on the Gallatin with bugs all the way up past Big Sky. Fish are still looking for them throughout the canyon along with a few Golden Stones and caddis, especially in the evenings. Best time for good dry fly fishing is mid day into the evening. Nymphing has been good throughout the day.

1340 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower Madison is still a great option, but we recommend fishing it early or later in the day. Caddis and PMDs are still around in good numbers, particularly up into Beartrap Canyon. Inner tube floaters have made fishing tougher from Warm Springs down during the heat of the day. A dry with a dropper has been most effective.

741 CFS @ Kirby - Salmonflies are still around on the Upper Madison in the Lyons Bridge area and upstream but you'll still find the occasional fish looking for them below. Golden Stones, Caddis and a few PMDs still remain in good numbers. Fishing a bigger dry like a chubby with a dropper has been good, but nymphing will produce the most fish.

4620 CFS @ Corwin - Fishing on the Yellowstone has been excellent the past few days. Salmonflies are still around above Yankee Jim Canyon, but below there are golden stones, lots of caddis, yellow sallies and a few PMDs. Fishing a big dry with a bead dropper has been very effective but nymphing has been best for the bigger fish.

4590 CFS@Holter-It is dry fly season on the Missouri River this time of the year as the PMD hatch is in full swing and there are still some caddis as well, especially on the lower river. The upper river from Holter to below Craig has seen the most PMD action. The fish are starting to get picky so make sure you have you A game when throwing the dries.

There have been some great reports of dry fly action for the local springs creeks, especially the Paradise Valley creeks. PMDs are the bulk of the action at this time with a few caddis and midges still hatching as well. Nymphing has also been productive as there are lots of fish in the faster riffles. Dry fly fishing is getting technical at this time so grab your 6x!
