Armstrong's, DePuy's and Nelson's Spring Creek - June 19th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 58 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
Paradise Valley spring creeks are a good choice right now for those looking to get out on the water and not be looking at high and off color rivers.  Creeks are just starting to see a few PMDs when we get a day of moderate to good sunshine (yeah, I know, those have been numbered like the fingers on my hand).  Hatches should start to become a little more regular and intensify in the coming weeks.   There are rods available right now but by early July, you may be out of luck!  Best call well ahead of time.    We've been having good results with a "short leash" spring creek nymph rig throughout the day.  If we see a consistent riser, first identifying what we think they're eating and then getting a good presentation on the first couple of casts.  Be prepared to move around a fair bit on the creeks until you find the fish. 
 
Gallatin River - June 19th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 53 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
Nope. The river isn't over House Rock yet but don't be surprised if it gets huge with the string of warmer weather we have on the way. Just like The Yellowstone, The Gallatin won't really be an option for some time to come.
 
Yellowstone River - June 10th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 66 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
Chances of rain for the next day or so in Paradise Valley and the Yellowstone, then an extended (relatively)dry period - 3 to 4 days, maybe.  Wow,  that's what we are calling 'extended' these days?  The Yellowstone is ripping right now.  Full on mud, mud, mud and not a logical choice for fishing.   As we continue to see both rain as well as warming periods, it's only going to get bigger.  Will we hit 30 grand at Corwin which was the record flow in '97?  Yep, and then some perhaps...
 
Madison River - June 10th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 55 ° F 
  • Fishing: Fair
Upper Madison near West Yellowstone is giving up a pretty consistent number of fish right now. There is a lot of water pumping through the channel but it has forced most of the fish into lies right on the bank. Doing the dirty short leash with a bugger and a worm with some lead and a 1' bobber right off the grass has been the best way to conjure up some action. Inside the park the water is clearing more and more every day and hopefully we will have consistent PMD, BWO, and Caddis action in this next week. The lower river below Ennis is still  raging and two shades of brown. It's hovering right around 5,000 cfs.
 
Armstrong's, DePuy's and Nelson's Spring Creek - June 6th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 77 ° F 
  • Fishing: Fair
Wow!  Finally some summer like weather around here!  Upper 70s, sun, very very nice.  Making for some tough conditions on the spring creeks however.  Got to find those fish in the creeks in the deep pools and be patient on your nymphing game....
 
Gallatin River - June 6th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 75 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
Wow!  Now this is summer-like.... too bad it's not going to last.  Rest of the week looks crappy!  20 degrees cooler and rain.  Ugh.  River's going to get really big though in a hurry.
