592 CFS@Gateway - The Gallatin is currently dirty from the recent rain we have had. Look for it to clear in the next few days. There is still clean water above the Taylor's Fork and up into Yellowstone Park. Nymphing has been most productive but small baetis nymphs fished under small attractor dries have still been working well.

1130 CFS@Ennis - The Lower Madison has been fishing outstanding with tan crayfish or sculpin patterns fished with bead head droppers. Dragging them through the deeper faster water has been most productive. The fish really seem to be keying into the flies when they are on the move, but not stripped too fast.

984 CFS@Cameron-Fall fishing is in full swing on the Upper Madison at this time. Cool temps and cloudy weather have gotten fish active for both streamers and dry flies the past few days. BWOs have been the bulk of the surface activity. Streamer fishing has been great and if all else fails a stonefly nymph with a small mayfly nymph has been good.

1010 CFS @ Corwin - The recent heavy rains have turned the Yellowstone River chocolate for the moment. Once it clears, the cooler weather should bring on some baetis and start to give us some great fall dry fly fishing. Streamer fishing should also be picking up. NOTE - There will no longer be any closed sections as of Friday Sept 23!

3760 CFS@Holter-The Missouri River has been a great fishing option the past few days and should continue with this fall weather making great fishing conditions. Streamer action has been increasing and the dry fly fishing for BWOs has been worth the drive up there. If you want numbers than try nymphing a crayfish and small bead for action all day.

Fall fishing is spectacular on the Paradise Valley at this time. BWOs and midges are hatching at this time and BWOs are the bulk of the surface action. Cool and cloudy conditions have been great for dry fly fishing, and if the weather warms and the sun comes back out try a small beetle or ant for those fish. Try a small nymph in the riffles as well
