456 CFS@Gateway-The Gallatin river is a great option as we move into winter conditions. Nymphing a stonefly and small beadhead in slow deep runs will be very productive. Make sure to add plenty of weight and get your flies deep, on the bottom! . There might be a few BWOs and midges hatching on warmer afternoons over the next few days as well.

1720 CFS@Ennis Lake - The Lower Madison has been fishing well as of late. Nymphing has been producing the best results using a zirdle bug trailed by a baetis nymph or lightning bug behind it. The BWO action has been dropping off so a double nymph rig will most likely yield the best results throughout the course of the day.

1020 CFS @ Kirby- The Upper Madison has been fishing very well the last few days if your willing to brave the elements. Three Dollar Bridge and Raynolds both are a great option for nymphing and some surface action on overcast days. Nymphing with Eggs and Baetis has been efficient in buckets and deeper runs. Be RESPECTFUL of spawning fish.

1490 CFS@Livingston - The Yellowstone River is slowing down a bit and the best time seems to be mid to late afternoon. BWO action is becoming less & less abundant so using a rubber legs or a stonefly nymph with a beachhead or Pheasant tail behind it will be the most effective especially as we move further into winter conditions.

4530 CFS@Holter-The Missouri River continues to be a great option as we move into winter fishing conditions. Nymphing small beadheads has been the most productive fishing method. There are a few fish looking up for midges on warmer afternoons and the streamer bite has also been good. If you are into swinging flies this is a great time on the MO.

The Paradise Valley Spring Creeks are a great winter option especially early on like right now. On cloudy, overcast days watch for fish keying in on BWO's and midges while the sunnier days will produce better using nymph setups. Subtle & small is better when it comes to Spring Creeks so using little BH's & BWO nymphs could be very effective.
