The spring creeks are a good option right now. The rainbows are moving up into the creeks and should be spawning and we should see more fish each day. Nymphing is still the best method right now with sensitive indicators, long leaders, and light tippet (9-10ft 5x leaders). Fluorocarbon is recommended here. Some solid patterns for these creeks include Zebra Midges, Pheasant Tails, Micro Mays, Skinny Nelson, Perdigons, sowbugs/scuds, and San Juan Worms. We should expect some dry fly fishing any day now keep an eye out for bwo's. Temps should be around the 50s throughout the week but are will rise and fall depending on the sun.

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.
