492 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin continues to fish well. In the canyon, attractors and flying ants have produced fish, while the lower stretches have continued to fish well with hoppers. Nymphing is also a safe bet, larger nymphs trailed by small beadheads should do the trick.

1410 CFS @ Ennis - The Lower is fishing well! While the hopper fishing is on the decline, attractors and BWO's should have fish looking up. If fish aren't willing to rise, a nymph set up should be productive. San Juans or Crayfish trailed by a smaller flashy nymph is a solid choice. Streamer fishing should also be picking up!

1060 CFS @ Kirby - The Upper continues to fish well. Hopper fishing is slowing down, but with the warm weather the next few days, fish should still be keyed in on them. Otherwise, BWOs or other attractor patterns should produce a few fish. Nymphing stonefly patterns or worms is another option.

1770 CFS @ Corwin - Hopper fishing is about done on the Yellowstone. Beetles and ants are still an option, though. Nymphing should also work -- Rubber legs and Girdles have produced fish. Streamer fishing has been hit or miss, but we would anticipate it would be picking up soon!

4630 CFS @ Holter - The fishing on the Missouri has been solid. Nymphing has been the most productive -- Crayfish and Zirdles are a good starting place. Early morning or late afternoon you should see some rising fish. Dry dropper setups are a good choice during these times.

The Paradise Valley spring creeks are a good option right now for the dry fly purist. Late summer conditions on spring creeks mean that you better have a well stocked terrestrial box with hoppers, beetles, ants and crickets. There are still a few PMDs and Sulphurs hatching as well in the afternoon. Nymphing a small mayfly or midge will also work.
