400 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin River has stabilized after the rain and early runoff conditions. The river is now looking and fishing good. We've heard a couple of reports from the Valley stretch of solid nymphing with big black Stoneflies, Baetis nymphs, and Worm patterns. Dry fly fishing has been good as well in the Canyon stretch, with BWOs being the main hatch.

1,260 CFS [44.1℉] @ Ennis Dam - We finally have started to get a few reports from the Lower Madison River, and from the sounds of it, it's been fishing quite well. Dry fly fishing has been solid in the Bear Trap area with BWOs being the main source of bug activity. Nymphing will get the job done as well, and you can never count out the streamer bite. Water clarity is improving.

891 CFS [40.3℉] @ Cameron - We continue to receive great reports from the Upper Madison River. Nymphing has been the way to go for most folks. Running a worm or Stonefly with a small BH dropper has been the ticket. Keep in mind that there are a lot of spawning Rainbow Trout in the river right now, so give them some space while they do their thing.

1800 CFS @ Livingston - The Yellowstone River is looking good and has been fishing well lately! The river is still fairly low, so getting around for the wade fisherman is still a possibility. A lot of the fish are still concentrated in the deeper runs, so make sure you're fishing the right water. BWO dry fly fishing has been good at times when the wind isn't too extreme.

4043 CFS [3.7℉] @ Holter Dam - Fishing on the Missouri River continues to be quite productive. Nymphing has been a little slower than we're used to this time of year, but if you put in the time, you'll find your fish. Swinging and stripping the streamer has been hot at times, as you can cover more water and get into bigger fish. Don't count out the dry fly fishing either.

As Spring continues to show itself, fishing on the Spring Creeks has continued to improve. BWOs and Midges are the main source of hatch, with the heavy hatch starting around 11:00. If nymphing is your thing, the small sow, scud, worm, and BWO bite has been very solid. Keep in mind that there are a lot of spawning Rainbows moving up out of the river. Let them do their thing.
