Spring Fishing

Though it felt a bit more like winter today with constant snow and temps hovering around thirty all day, there is no question that the fish have entered into the spring routine. From the upper Madison to the Yellowstone, Gallatin and Spring Creeks in Paradise Valley, we have experienced some phenomenal fishing both with nymphs and dries. Midge hatches have been as good as I can remember and in the past few day the baetis have started to make their presence. Though the weather has been all over the map in the past week or so, the fishing has stayed consistent.

Reports from the Missouri over the weekend were also outstanding. Without a doubt, if you can handle the some adversity with the weather, April is one of Montana's finest months to fish.
