Weather near Livingston has been slightly warmer than Bozeman but it has been crazy windy in that direction. Fishing the creeks in the Winter months can be some of the best. Just look for a day with slightly less wind to have more fun. Nymphing has remained the most productive method. Good imitations for the creeks include Zebra Midges, Scuds/Sowbugs, Micro Mays, and Pheasant Tails. With all of these patterns, fish a #16 or smaller. These spring creek trout are known to refuse flies, so fishing fluorocarbon leaders can really up your chances. I like a 9-10ft tapered leader to 5x. Use sensitive, small indicators like a Pulsa or made of yarn. As always when headed to the creeks, make sure you have some flies that imitate different life-cycles.

Montana spring creeks are home to some of the most coveted wild trout waters found anywhere in the world. These small streams are spring-fed bodies of water characterized by consistent year-round water temperatures and stream flows. These stable environments provide exceptional habitat for many insect types along with the trout that feed on them. Generally speaking, there is dry fly fishing to be found just about any day of the year on the regional spring creeks.
