The weather has finally taken a turn in SW Montana, with plenty of colder temps, clouds, and snow. If the wind doesn’t get out of hand, there have been some BWO’s on the water. Keep your eyes peeled for risers in the foam eddies and smooth-flowing tail-outs. If dries are out of the equation due to wind or a bright sunny day, try fishing a streamer or nymphing some baetis nymphs. If you choose streamers, be sure to slow down your retrieve as the water temperatures have dropped significantly. The Spring Creeks have been fishing well, with both baetis and midge patterns are working well. The Spring Creeks have now dropped to their $40 winter rates. Please watch out for any redds, (spawning beds) and try not to step on them or fish to spawning fish. Yellowstone National Park is also worth a trip. With more traffic on the Madison there has been less pressure on the NE side of the Park. Better get out there while you can, this year the Park closes November 1st, (the first Sunday in November)! Give us a call if you’d like to book a trip! 406-222-7130.
