385 CFS@Gateway-The Gallatin River remains one of the best options for the local angler at this time. Dry fly fishing has been good especially in the afternoon with small hoppers and other terrestrials working great, also try a small attractor like Trudes or Stimulators. Nymphing as always is a great option especially on cooler mornings.

1130 CFS@Ennis Dam-While still on Hoot Owl restrictions the Lower Madison has been a pretty good option for the angler looking to fish in the morning. Fishing has been good with crayfish and Zirdles with a small flashy beadhead dropper. The cool nights have helped lower the temps but be extra careful with the fish on the Lower for the near future.

953 CFS@Cameron-The Upper Madison continues to fish great according to the reports we are getting from our guides. Nymphing has been the best option with some form of rubberlegs stonefly nymph with a small flashy beadhead dropper. The fish are looking up some for hoppers in the afternoon and a beadhead dropper will also increase your odds for fish.

4160 CFS@Holter-We have been getting some great reports from the fishing on the Missouri River lately. Dry fly fishing has been good with terrestrials and smaller attractors working best as Tricos are tapering off. Nymphing has been working best on the MO with crayfish and smaller flashy beads being the best rig, also try a streamer early or late.
