Montana Fishing Report

1130 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin continues to be fishing well! There has been quite a bit of surface action - larger attractors trailed by Copper Johns or Hare's Ears are a great choice. PMDs, Caddis, and Yellow Sallies are also around in numbers, so be sure to have some in your box. In the afternoon, Rusty Spinners should work well.

2620 CFS @ Ennis - With the higher temperatures and abundance of subsurface weeds, fishing has been getting tougher on the Lower. As the water warms, be aware that flows may increase and decrease often in an attempt to cool the water down. Attractor patterns and PMDs should work early morning, as well Caddis in late afternoon.

1450 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper is fishing very well! There are a number of bugs around; such as PMDs, Yellow Sallies, Caddis, and Green Drakes. On the Upper stretches watch for bigger bugs. There is still plenty of subsurface action as well, a Stonefly nymph trailed by a $3 Dollar Dip or soft hackle is a safe bet.

7080 CFS @ Corwin - The Yellowstone is another good option at the moment. Fish are looking up, and larger Attractor flies and Stoneflies have been productive - especially towards the YNP boundary. Nymphing with a Girdle followed by Prince Nymph or a Lightning Bug is another good option. Streamers are another great choice that have produced fish!

6810 CFS @ Holter - Fishing has been productive on the Missouri. Numerous bugs are around - Tricos have made appearances; as well as Caddis and PMDs. There are also plenty of good nymphing reports. The water is warming up, so the best times are morning and late afternoon.

While most rivers are fishable at the moment, Spring Creeks are still a great option. Both surface and subsurface flies have been working well, especially PMDs. Be sure to check availability prior to making plans, it can be busy!
