Montana Fishing Report

The Gallatin River has been fishing well during the day. It takes a while for that water to warm up, but once it does the fish have been fairly active. Nymphs have the way to go with Stoneflies, Caddis, and Midges leading the way. Streamer fishing has been solid recently as well, mainly down here in the valley. Look for midge activity as well on the cloudy days.

1,680 CFS ➡️ [33.8℉] Things have gotten cold over on the Lower Madison River. If you're looking to get out and fish, you don't need to get out at sunrise. Fishing has been best starting around noon and lasting through the afternoon. Nymphing will be your friend, but look for midges and rising fish as well. Also, don't be afraid to swing a cray through some of the deeper runs.

1,090 CFS ➡️ With this unusually warm weather, now is an excellent time to get out to the river and fish! The Upper Madison River has fished very well all week, especially starting around noon when the water has a chance to warm up. Guys have been getting fish on nymphs, streamers, and dries, so it really just depends on what method you feel like trying today!

1,190 CFS ➡️The Yellowstone River has been fishing well recently, and as long as the wind isn't too extreme you should be in for a nice time. Nymphing the deeper runs has been solid, and there have been a few trout up eating midges. Streamer fishing has been good on the strip and the swing. Work the banks, and make a few casts to the middle river sometimes. You may be surprised.

4,630 CFS ➡️ [36.4℉] The Missouri River continues to be one of the top options around. If you have a drift boat, great! If not, no big deal, there are plenty of places for wading. Nymphing has been excellent, as has the streamer fishing. When the clouds roll in, look for a great midge hatch! If you're looking for big feisty rainbows and brown trout, this is the place to be.

The Spring Creeks are a great choice this time of year! If you're looking to get in on some great winter fishing, the spring creeks are the place to be. Nymphing is usually quite productive, and can keep you in the fish before and after the Midge hatch. Your go-to nymphs will be small midges, mayfly type patterns, small worms, and sow/scuds. Keep an eye out for spawners!
