898 CFS @ Gallatin Gateway - The Gallatin River is in nice shape right now, and fishing has been quite good. If you like to throw Attractor style dry flies, you're in luck. Bring plenty of Royal Wulffs, Trudes, and Stimulators. Nymphing has been productive in the faster riffles. With the warmer temperatures, fish are more concentrated in the faster water, as there is more oxygen.

1870 @ Ennis Dam - The Lower Madison is in full on inner tube and bikini hatch mode which is probably a good thing as the water is pretty warm out there. Cooler weather predicted this week should help things, but for now we recommend leaving the fish alone out there and enjoy a nice float.

1,030 CFS @ Hebgen Dam - The Upper Madison River is still hanging in there. Luckily, we are expecting to have cooler water coming out of the dam in the next few weeks, and that should only help the fishing. All that said, the fishing has been solid lately. The PMD hatch has been strong, and the Caddis have been out by the millions. There are still a few Stoneflies up high.

4,740 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River continues to fish very well. Caddis, PMDs, Yellow Sallies and Golden Stones are all still around in great numbers. Dry fly fishing in the shallows or nymphing in the deeper runs has been excellent. Cooler weather is in the forecast so its a good time to get out.

4,180 CFS @ Holter Dam - The Missouri River is a great place to be right now, especially if you like throwing small dry flies to picky trout. The PMDs are out in full force and Tricos have been showing themselves here and there. Also, Yellow Sallies during the day and Caddis in the evenings. It's is hot out there, so fish early and late for the most comfort and best action.

If you're looking for dry fly action, you'll be hard pressed to find a better spot than one of the area Spring Creeks. PMDs are the main source of hatch activity now. If that doesn't seem to be producing, don't hesitate to try the small Terrestrial pattern. Big trout find it quite difficult to pass up a well presented Ant or Beetle in these hot summer months.
