The weather is finally turning nice and summer temperatures seem to be here at last! The Forecast for the coming weekend does have some scattered showers and thunderstorms, so keep your eye on the sky if you are planning on being out this weekend.
The Gallatin is in full runoff mode, flowing 2240 CFS and rising everyday. If you are trying to get out this week there are better options but if you absolutely have to try fishing the clear sections where some of the mountain streams are flowing in. The other good thing to try is a big black rubberlegs and worm around the banks. If you are planning on hitting the Gallatin keep your eye out for debris coming down river.
The Madison has been fishing well lately with the warmer weather bringing the caddis back out in force. The have been thickest on the lower and farther down toward ennis on the upper. There have been some good reports of Caddis higher up on the upper just not as many of them. This time of year its never a bad idea to try some smally chubbys through the day if you aren’t getting any love from the caddis.
Hebgen Lake has been doing well. We’ve been hearing quite a few reports of fish being caught on small leeches trailed by an Ice Cream Cone or something similar.The water is on the rise and hopefully we will be able to spread out a bit soon.
