Spring Creeks Fishing Report 10/15/2020

Date: 10/15/2020

Current Conditions

The spring creeks around Livingston have been fishing decently well. Dry fly action has been spotty but this cool weather should have BWO hatched going for the next few days. The tough part will be finding a break in the wind to find risers. The hatches will be thicker in wet and low light conditions, so look at the weather before you head here if you are looking for surface action. Nymphing baetis, midges, and scuds can be good as well. Long leaders, light tippet for dries,  and fluorocarbon for subsurface fishing. Fish natural patterns like a BWO Quill Gordon or a Last Chance BWO. Fish here can be very picky so it is a good idea to have a variety of imitations and different patterns for different life cycles of the hatch you want to match.

Spring Creeks Overview

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.
