Iced Flow Gage @ Gateway - The Gallatin fishing should pick up with the warming week ahead. There has been a little fishing here in the valley lately on the warmer days with nymphing being the most productive. Target your deeper, slow moving water and when you find fish just keep changing presentations to keep yourself catching fish.

1690 CFS @ Ennis: The latest cold weather hasn't helped much but there is warmer temps on the horizon. Starting this weekend and into next week we should see temps above freezing that should open up the river a bit more and get fish feeding. Below the dam is going to be your best bet as of now with a worm up front and a pink fly trailer.

There is no current stream flow data for the Upper Madison as the gauge is iced up at the moment. That should tell you a bit about the current fishing conditions up there. It's been pretty cold up high but if you can make it to the water between the lakes or around Raynolds Pass Bridge, you might catch a fish or two. Next week should warm up.

865 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River is currently a little too icy to fish with much success. Lots of float ice in the river which will stick around until we get a bit of warmer weather. Also, wind has been a huge factor making it unfishable on many days. Keep posted.

3730 CFS @ Holter - The cold air temps has caused the dry fly fishing to slow considerably. The best choice continues to be nymphing with egg, worm, and scud/sowbug patterns. Swinging streamers slow through some deeper pools has also been picking up a few fish.

Now on their winter rates, the spring creeks are a great option for getting out and catching a few fish on these blustery days we have been having. The fish certainly pod up and move around in the creeks in the winter so don't be afraid to move up or down the creek if you're not catching much. Nymphing is about the only game.
