2,250 CFS @ Gallatin Gateway - The Gallatin River is looking good still above Taylor's Fork. Stoneflies and small Caddis pupas are both on the menus. Yellow Sally and PMD nymphs are taking some fish as well, and will continue to produce into June. Don't forget the Attractor dries at home, as those Upper Gallatin River trout love the Royal Wulff and Stimulators.

1,830 CFS @ Ennis Dam - The Lower Madison River has been a consistent option throughout May. At times, Cherry Creek has been supplying a bit of dirty water, however that hasn't seemed to slow down fishing too much. As the weather continues to warm, look for Caddis to start popping again, as well as good action on the Crayfish, Yellow Sally, and Baetis nymphs.

1,870 CFS @ Cameron - The Upper Madison River is certainly an option. The West Fork is pumping in quite a bit of mud, as is Indian Creek. That said, downstream of McAtee Bridge is pretty blown out. Upstream of West Fork, we've heard some great reports. Nymphing with the stonefly has been the ticket, and streamer fishing in the boulder gardens will produce some nice fish.

9,000 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River is still blown out. We're probably done over here for a few more weeks. Keep checking back, and when it starts to come into shape, you'll be the first to know. For now, focus your efforts on the local Tailwater fisheries, as they will offer more consistent fishing action.

4,020 CFS @ Wolf Creek Dam - The Missouri River continues to fish quite well. No matter your fishing preference, you should be able to get into some fish. Head-hunters will find their fish down low, and below the dam. Caddis and March Browns, with PMDs on the horizon. Nymphing the deep slots will produce, and stripping streamers could yield some large brown trout.

This is a great time to get over to the Spring Creeks as most of the other area Freestones are blown out. BWOs are starting to taper out, and there are a few midges around still to fill your dry fly fix. PMDs and Caddis are just around the corner. Nymphing or stripping a steamer in the deeper pools and riffles can keep you occupied while the hatch is heating up.
