Montana Fishing Report

323 CFS @ Gateway - The water temps have dropped and the fish have settled into their holding spots. The fishing has been fairly good in the valley, but you have to find the right depth in the deeper riffles in order to find fish. Work combination nymph rigs until you find the right setup.

1500 CFS @ Ennis - Deeper, softer pockets are the places to find fish right now on the Lower Madison. Below the dam through Bear Trap has been productive lately. The fish have been fairly active in this area and can be hooked with bigger nymph setups, but head for the deeper riffles.

1210 CFS @ Cameron - The fish are sitting in deeper pockets on the Upper right now and are still active if you put the right rig in front of them. Softer pockets in the afternoons seem to have been the best time to head out. Perhaps the warmer temps this week will help the bite.

1480 CFS @ Livingston - There have been a few decent reports about the Yellowstone higher up near Corwin and in the valley from Carter's to Mallard's. Nymphing deeper in the foam pockets and seams has produced some good size fish. Head out in the afternoon for the best chance at hooking some fish.

4500 CFS Below Holter - No crowds and decent weather make it a good time to make a trip to Craig. The nymphing game has been good with heavier, weighted flies being the ticket. Get them down fast and keep them there while hitting the softer pockets. Smaller, flashy streamers have been getting a decent amount of action as well.

The spring creeks are a nice option right now with some good reports coming in lately. If the wind isn't blowing too hard, head over and tie on some smaller nymphs. The deeper pockets near the bends could be a great place to get into some fish. Sunny days are heading our way, so the spring creeks could be just the ticket for a great day of fishing.
