Montana Fly Fishing

The cool weather has thing shaping up. And options are also good enough to stay on this side of the divide. Main rivers are high still high. But clarity is improving in many spots and a little gamble, as long as you stay safe, can pay off. Upper stretches of all the rivers are your best bet. Salmonflies are popping up in some spots and the fish are on them in some areas. Big chubby with a long dropper is you best bet.
Hard to tell if we’ve actually seen the highest flows.? Some rain followed by warm days could still throw a curve ball. But hopefully a cool June will keep us with good flows for the rest of the summer. It sure seems that way lately. General consensus seems to be that prime conditions are a week or two away.
