1,750 CFS @Gateaway- The Gallatin is on the drop and is green colored at the moment. Salmon Flys have worked their way up to the Bigsky area and above. Caddis in the evening have been starting to show and a few Green Drakes as well. Look for the fish to be still up against the bank until the flows drop a bit more.

1,710 CFS @bl Ennis Lake- The Lower Madison is fishing well right now with crayfish patterns and soft hackle Hares Ears. The dry fly fishing has been good in the evenings with Caddis, Royal Wulff's and other attractors. During the day there are some Yellow Sallies and PMD's out and about. Look for the fish in the buckets between the weed beds.

982 CFS @Kirby- The Upper Madison is fishing really well right now. The big bugs have moved their way up to the higher stretches of the river so if your heading to the walk wade section be sure to have a few in the box. PMD's are also out right now and the fish have been keying in on them. Big Stone Fly nymphs have been productive as well.

11,700 @bl Holter- The Missouri River is fishing okay at the moment. Dry fly action has slowed down since they raised the river, once flows comes back down the fishing should pick back up. Nymphing the long deep runs have been the most productive with PMD, Yellow Sally and Caddis Nymphs. Streamer fishing has slowed down as well.

The Pardise Valley Spring Creeks are fishing great right now. PMD's are out in full force as well as some drakes starting to show. In the evenings you may find some caddis still out and about. Nymphing as also been productive with small attractors and PMD nymph's. If your looking to fish some small water these are a great option going forward.
