532 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin River is in great shape and continues to be a good late summer/early fall fishing option. Mornings have been most productive with a double nymph setup fished in the deeper pools while the afternoon's are still best with hoppers and terrestrials along the banks and in the riffles.

1,530 CFS @ bl Ennis - With the cooler air temperatures starting to show up, the Lower Madison will continue to get better and better as we move further into September and fall. Hoppers & attractor patterns are working for dries while crayfish patterns and mayfly nymphs fished along the weed beds have been working for your sub-surface flies.

1,010 CFS @ Kirby - Hoppers and terrestrials are still pulling fish especially on the warmer afternoons although it is slowing down a bit. With the transition from summer to fall comes the reappearance of BWO's. A good setup for right now would be a hopper or chubby on top with a BWO emerger or midge as the trailing fly.

1680 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone River is in great shape and fishing well despite the moisture from last week. Fall baetis have been out in good numbers on the cloudy days but when the sun comes out, hoppers and large attractors are still the best bet. Streamer fishing has also been picking up as has nymphing the deeper runs.

5,370 CFS @ Holter - The Missouri River is a great fishery this time of year. Trico's are still hatching & will be most abundant mid-morning. If no fish are rising, switch to your nymph setup with plenty of weight & a long leader to get down to the fish. The streamer bite is starting to pick up & will only get better as water temps keep dropping.

The Paradise Valley Spring Creeks are fishing well and will continue to get better as water temps continue to drop. Smaller attractor patterns like hoppers, ants, and beetles are working right now with BWO's right around the corner on these creeks. If the dry fly action is slow try switching to a soft hackle and swing it through the riffles.
