428 CFS @ Gallatin Gateway- The Gallatin has been a solid option as of late with most of the fish being caught on nymphs. Rubber legs trailed by a pheasant tail or copper john would be a good start. If you do decide to dry fly fish, small mayfly imitations have been the best choice. Fish will still eat the hopper lower in the valley.

1,300 CFS bl Ennis Lake- The Lower Madison has been fishing well as of late with most of the action happening bellow the surface. Drifting a crayfish pattern with a soft hackle or zebra midge trailed behind it has been hooking the most fish. Look for them holding behind the boulders and in the buckets. Streamer fishing will pick up here soon!

1,040 CFS @Kirby- The Upper Madison has been consistent with the hopper fishing in the afternoons and nymphing in the morning. Fish have been taking rubberlegs trailed by most any small attractor nymph. The streamer fishing has been getting better with the better fishing early and late and should continue to improve.

1,880 CFS @Livingston- The Yellowstone continues to be a great option for a float trip. Fishing nymphs in the morning has been successful with big stone flies followed by a soft hackle or baetis nymph. Hopper fishing in the afternoons has still been solid with some fish looking up. Streamer fishing in the mornings has been picking up as well.

4,160CFS @ Holter - The Missouri has slowed down since the last cold front. Hoppers in the afternoons when it warms up will still turn fish. Some fish have been eating adult baetis. Nymphing with zebra midges, sow bugs and small baetis has been a little better then the dry fly action. Streamers will begin picking up soon!

The Paradise Valley Spring Creeks are fishing pretty good right now. The mornings have been more productive using nymphs like a zebra midge or baetis while later on in the day is producing some pretty good dry fly action. We're seeing a few PMD's while beetles, ants and smaller attractor patterns have been a good option throughout the whole day.
