• Montana  Madison River Flows are a bit lower, 714cfs, than the long term average, 1040cfs, as they're filling up Hebgen Lake which is 94% full. The river is clear coming out of the dam and then Cabin and Beaver Creeks are dumping in some dirt.  Fishing has been good between the lakes and best in the mornings with small nymphs. Pheasant tails, pearl lightning bugs and brown three dollar dips in #16, #18 dropped off a rubber legs #6 or red San Juan worms have been the best combo.  The...

Get there early and look for PMD's and caddis. Nymphing is good with flashback PT's and three dollar dips #16 and #18. Fish should start looking for terrestrials soon. Gallatin River This river is fishing well, as this is a cold river and there are spruce moths starting to...
