558- CFS @Gateway- The Gallatin River is fishing well with most of action happening in the canyon towards Bigsky. The lower Gallatin bellow four corners is under a hoot owl right now if you are thinking about fishing the lower sections. Hopper Droppers, Caddis, and Spruce Moths have been the most effective patterns at the moment.

1,750 CFS @ Bl Ennis Lake- The Lower Madison is still own a hoot owl below the Warm Springs put in. That being said Beartrap canyon has been fishing well early in the morning before it gets hot. Throwing hoppers, zirdles and soft hackles have all been good options to hook into fish. Streamer fishing has been okay first thing in the morning.

1,420 CFS @Kirby- The upper Madison is a great option right now. Hopper fishing has been good with a caddis nymph as a dropper. In the evenings we have been seeing fish rise to caddis consistently. Look for the fish to behind some of the big boulders towards the middle of the river.

The paradise valley spring creeks is a very productive option right now with lots of dry fly activity. The fish have been eating hoppers, ants as well as PMD's. Also there has been some caddis out in the evenings. Running small nymphs as a dropper has also been productive.
