Lower Madison muddy but fishing

While the Yellowstone is still too high and mighty we’ve been focusing on other waters – namely the Lower Madison, the Paradise Valley Spring Creeks, and local/private lakes.  The Lower Madison has been off color the past few days but the browns have been eating stonefly nymphs, crayfish, and streamer patterns.  The fish have been hanging out in their normal spots and some pretty nice sized browns are always caught this time of year.  As flows on the Lower drop we should see some fantastic salmonfly fishing over here.  The Spring Creeks have been pretty tough lately as baetis have slowed down and the PMD’s haven’t started yet.  Sawyer style PT’s, scuds, and midge larva have been the standard go to flies.  Lakes have been fishing well with leeches, damsel nymphs, rubberlegs, and callibaetis nymphs.  We’ve haven’t seen much dry fly action yet, but all that is about to change mid-June.  Give us a all if you’d like to book a trip, there will be plenty of options available if you’d like to get out there and enjoy a day on the water!  406-222-7130.
