Private Lakes

Now that the Yellowstone is finally in good shape the local and private lakes have finally started to come back strong. During the month of July there was a lot of pressure on many of these lakes, with anglers on them almost everyday.  Now that the fishing pressure has slowed down the fish are back…

Lower Yellowstone

We’ve had lots of folks ask us about the Lower Yellowstone.  We’ve had mixed reports but all agree there is A LOT of water down there with some dangerously big waves.  Yesterday guides did very well and landed several nice fish.  Today the morning was a little slow, most likely due to a brewing storm…

Yellowstone River Fishing Report

The  Yellowstone River is now fishing on a daily basis river wide.  While the river is not clear yet, it is green and the sub surface fishing has been good.  Over the past week our guides have produced many nice fish in the 20 inch range.   We are hoping to see the surface fishing…

Upper Madison

Still some stoneflies on the upper Madison right now, (near and above Lyon’s bridge).  Salmonflies, goldenstone, sallies, plus a mix of caddis in the evenings.  Dry fly fishing has been a little slower than nymph fishing, but those who are willing to commit to dry fly only have been catching some nice ones…

Montana Fishing Report

The Madison River continues to fish very well with hatches of salmonflies, golden stones, caddis and yellow sallies, all of which have the trout on the feed. The PMD hatch has slowed up on the spring creeks, but look for size 18 -20 duns and spinner falls throughout the day. Also look for hatches of…
