Madison River - June 20th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Scattered showers
  • 67 ° F 
  • Fishing: Fair
The Lower Madison is starting to fish with big junk & a San Juan dropper tight to the bank. The water is still high but not horrible at just under 5,000 CFS. Coloration is definitely getting much better but not clear & clean quite yet.
 
Armstrong's, DePuy's and Nelson's Spring Creek - June 20th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 69 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Depuys had good PMD action and many reports of rising fish. Armstrong's is reporting an OK hatch and fish rising when it isn't windy. Nelson's has similar report - rising to PMD's - mainly during calmer skies. The big fish are in there - reports of 20" risers.  Best bet is to go with PMD dry on 5x tippet and an emerger on 6x trailing. 
 
Yellowstone River - June 19th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Cloudy
  • 58 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
We continue to have lots of water flowing through the valley. The river hasn't peaked in its annual run-off yet and we are keeping our eyes glued to the USGS flow charts. Right now the yelly is at 16,000 cfs at Corwin Springs. At this point The Yellowstone is really not even an option for fishing. Ideally we will see a few warm days giving the snow at altitude a chance cook off and get this train rolling. However, there are still plenty of fishing options in the Paradise Valley. Check out the Spring Creek reports and our private lake option!
 
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...
