Montana Fishing Report

2660 CFS@Gateway-The Gallatin River has been going from brown to green in color the past few days and the fishing has been improving. While the Gallatin is still high the fishing has been good with stonefly nymphs fished tight to the bank. We have heard some reports of a few Salmonflies being spotted in the canyon stretch the past couple of days.

3220 CFS@Ennis-The Lower Madison has been fishing great the past few days and is our best option for consistent fishing. Flows have been stable the past few days, which has really helped the fishing. Nymphing a Zirdle/Crayfish with a smaller bead has really been working well. There has been some sporadic dry fly fishing in the afternoon/evenings.

2680 CFS@Cameron-The Upper Madison is clearing up, and the big bugs are out primarily between Varney and Town and will be moving up river. Fishing has been good with streamers and big stonefly nymphs fished tight to the bank. Dry fly action has been picking up day by day with your big Salmonfly and Golden Stonefly patterns with a small dropper.

15200 CFS@Corwin-The Yellowstone River is dropping at this time but it is still too high and dirty. There is still quite a bit of snow in the high country that hasn't melted, we don't expect the Yellowstone to be fishable for another couple of weeks. The good news is that our late summer fishing should be great with the extra water this year.

10600 CFS@Holter-The Missouri River is a great option this time of the year as the flows have been dropping the past few days. If the flows remain consistent around the 9-10K mark the PMD fishing should heat up again. If the PMD bite is not happening the nymphing has been great with bigger flies like a Zirdle or Crayfish with a PMD nymph dropper.

The Paradise Valley Spring Creeks are a great option right now. The PMD hatch has been the most consistent dry fly fishing on the creeks as of late with a few midges hatching as well. Dry fly fishing has been the reason most people are going to the spring creeks, but if there is no surface activity try a small mayfly nymph in the riffles for fish.
