Montana Fishing Report

494 CFS ➡️ We've had a few good reports from the Gallatin River recently. Guys have been getting into a lot of good fish on the nymph rig. Stoneflies, small Baetis stuff, and worm patterns are getting the job done sub-surface right now. Dry fly fishing has been a bit hit or miss. If there is some cloud cover, you can get a nice BWO hatch, otherwise it could be slow.

1,440 CFS ➡️ [50.0℉] We've had a few guys fishing the Lower Madison River recently, and their reports have been solid. Nymphing is the main catching method, however swinging crayfish and smaller streamers through the buckets has been moving some good fish as well. On the cloudy days, we've seen some really nice BWO hatches and plenty of fish rising, so don't forget the mayfly box.

971 CFS ➡️ [46.4℉] October is a great month on the Upper Madison River however, it has been a bit hit or miss so far, simply because of the unusually warm weather we've had. That said, there are still plenty of fish being caught on nymphs, and when the clouds roll in, dry fly fishing and streamer fishing picks up quickly. This week should be great with the cold front moving in.

1,770 CFS ➡️ If you can handle the wind, you'll have a chance at a great day on the Yellowstone River. It is always a bit hit or miss this time of year, however when it's on, fishing can be better than any other time of the year. Streamer guys have been pounding the banks looking for hogs, however if that's not your style, rig up the nymphs and keep your eyes peeled for rising fish.

4,240 CFS ➡️ [55.6℉] The Missouri River is really starting to fish well. You can go out and pound them on nymphs, or take the more delicate approach and wait for a few heads to pop up. BWOs have been sporadic with the warmer weather. Look for more consistency when the temps drop a bit. If you're looking to target the Browns, don't forget your streamer selection at home.

We've heard a few solid reports from the Spring Creeks recently, mostly consisting of small BWO and Midge dry fly fishing. Nymphing has been very consistent as well, if you are looking for higher numbers of fish. Small Baetis nymphs, midges, and worm patterns.
