Fall Fly Fishing in Montana

Looks like a great day to fish today.  Plenty of clouds throughout the day, 10-30% chance of precipitation, high near 60, and WSW wind between 12-22.  Not to mention, with big game season opening today you’ll see a lot more 4 wheelers (and 6×6 bulls) at the gas station than drift boats!  Looks like a less wind in the valley today than through town or down low.   Baetis will be the main hatch, there have been plenty of pods to play with if you are good at spotting risers.  Any size 16-18 pattern in grey should work.  For streamers, stick with more natural combinations as the river is so clear right now and get your flies DEEP!
