439 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin is fishing great right now. There has been a little slush in the mornings moving through the Big Sky stretch but has been clearing up by the afternoon. Now is the time to start nymphing the slower deeper holes. Try starting out with a Rubber Legs as your lead fly with a worm or smaller red or pink nymph behind it.

1,420 CFS @ bl Ennis Lake - Fishing on the Lower Madison has been hit or miss as of late. The streamer fishing has been best on the warmer days when the water temp rises a little. Midge and Baetis hatches haven't been great making nymphing your best bet for getting into fish. Focus on the weed beds with shorter leaders and weight to get down there.

1,030 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper Madison is one of the better fishing options in the area right now. The fishing has been great throughout the whole day with afternoons being best. Dry fly action has been on and off while the streamer and nymph fishing has been pretty consistent. Work the deeper runs with stoneflies, worms, eggs, and mayfly nymphs.

1,230 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone has been hit or miss depending on the day. This inconsistent weather has had the same effect on the fishing. Not much to say as far as dry fly action goes. There has been sporadic Midge hatches when conditions are right but nymphing will be your best bet. Try a stonefly on top with a prince nymph as your trailer

4,590 CFS @ Holter - The Missouri River is a great late-fall, early-winter fishery. BWO's are still hanging around but on the decline. The main hatch you'll be seeing are midges and the fish are actively taking them off the surface. When the sun is high & bright switch your nymph rig. Little mayflies, scuds, sow bugs, & midges are all pulling fish.

The Paradise Valley Spring Creeks are always a good option for this time of year especially with their winter rates now in effect. There have been Midge and Baetis hatches daily especially when there's low wind and overcast skies. If no fish are rising bring out the nymph rig. Scuds, sow bugs, eggs, and midges should all get the job done.
