606 CFS@Gateway-The Gallatin River continues to fish great especially in the Gallatin Canyon. Dry fly fishing has been very consistent with small attractor patterns and fish have been looking up for most of the day. Nymphing has also been good if the fish are not cooperating with the dry flies, a small stonefly and dropper will catch lots of fish.

1150 CFS @ Ennis - Regular pulsing of cooler water on the Upper Madison has been keeping the water temps on the Lower Madison just under 70 degrees most days, but honestly there are probably better options for fishing right now. Hoot Owl restrictions remain in place so you'll have to stop at 2:00 if you decide to head out.

1010 CFS@Cameron-The Upper Madison has been a great option the past few days with fish looking up for Chubby Chernobyls and other attractor dry flies. The dry fly bite has not been as consistent other rivers but if you stick with it you will catch fish. Nymphing will always produce some fish with a rubberlegs and small beadhead dropper.

2890 CFS @ Corwin - Fishing on the Yellowstone River has been very good lately as the fish are finally looking up for hoppers. Caddis and yellow sallies are also around in good numbers, especially in the afternoons. A dry/dropper rig has been very effective as has been a girdle bugger fished shallow with a short indicator.

4010 CFS @ Holter - The Missouri River has been fishing excellent, but has been a bit busy lately. Caddis and PMDs are still out in good numbers with a few Tricos starting to show up. Dry fly fishing has been good for the selective angler, but nymphing has been most productive throughout the day. Streamer fishing has been good early.

The Paradise Valley Spring Creeks have been fishing well. PMDs are still around but tailing off as we move into terrestrial season. Selective fish will eat a hopper or ant, but nymphing with a scud or small mayfly or midge nymph has been most productive. Long leaders and long drifts are best when dry fly fishing.
