567 CFS@Gateway-The Gallatin River is a little off-color the past day or two with all the rain we have been getting. The forecast for the next couple of days also has rain in the forecast so it could be a little tough the next couple of days, If it does clear some the Gallatin will be fishable with a large stonefly nymph, beadheads and San Juan's.

1450 CFS@Ennis-The Lower Madison continues to be one of the best fishing options. Cooler weather and lots of moisture the past few days have really got the fish active on the Lower. Nymphing a crayfish with a small flashy beadhead has been the most productive method. Cloudy days have also produced some good dry fly fishing at times in the afternoon

982 CFS@Cameron-The Upper Madison has been fishing great the past few days with the best reports coming from the upper section of the river and also between Hebgen and Quake Lake. Nymphing has been the best method with stoneflies and small beadheads being the best rig. Streamer action is also picking up and should only get better as fall progresses

2500 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River is still fishable in the valley despite the recent rain. There does look to be some dirty water headed downstream but there should be a fishable stretch for the next day or so. Cooler weather should get the streamer bite going as well as some fall baetis dry fly fishing.

3820 CFS@Holter-We have been getting some great reports from the Missouri River the past few days. Cooler temps and rain have really got the fish active especially if the BWO's are hatching. Nymphing will continue to produce the best action if you are looking for numbers and streamer fishing will only get better as fall progresses on the Missouri.

The Paradise Valley spring creeks have been fishing well the past few days as we move from Summer to Fall. There are still a few midges and PMDs hatching sporadically in the mornings and midday. Terrestrials have fish looking up in the afternoon for a more consistent dry fly bite. Nymphing small mayfly and midge patterns will produce fish as well.
