Spring Creeks and Lakes fishing well

With the Yellowstone still high and muddy we have been sending trips primarily to the Spring Creeks and private lakes.  Baetis have thinned off but PMD’s are ramping up with plenty of nymphs crawling around and getting ready to hatch a little later in June.  When the clouds come out the guides have seen a couple PMD dries already but the best dry fly action is yet to come.  Midges have been working well, as have scuds and even small terrestrials like ants and beetles.  Local and private lakes have been fishing very well lately.  Callibaetis dries have started and if the wind isn’t blowing we’ve had some excellent dry fly fishing already.  On windy days nymhing or stripping a leech or small bugger has been working well.

Nice work Kade!! Bye bye Zebco!!
