Big Sky area fishing report - 7/2/19

Its salmon fly time!

Gallatin River – The salmon flys are starting to show up around the shop now and the fishing has been good. Anglers have been doing well with Dancin’ Ricky’s, Flutterbugs, and Henrys fork stones. We have also talked to some people who have been getting more fish on a golden stone than a salmon fly, so don’t forget to add some of those to your box. Closer to the park line there haven’t been as many sightings of the big bugs, but there has been some very good caddis fishing. Try a Missing Link caddis, with a Juan’s Kryptonite caddis dropper.

Madison river – The last we heard the big bugs were still close to Ennis and the fishing was really starting to pick up. Its a fairly similar story as the Gallatin with a touch more variety. Try leading with a salmon fly or golden stone and trail it with a PMD, flying ant, or a caddis.

Hebgen Lake – The lake is still fishing well with leeches and Chironomids. It also hasn’t been getting as much pressure with so many people chasing the big bugs so it should continue to fish well. slow stripping a leech, or suspending a leech or chironomid under a bobber should do well.
