The Paradise Valley Spring Creeks have been fishing well. Midge and PMD hatches daily have made dry fly fishing incredibly fun. The fish have been quite picky so make your first cast count! Fishing a 12ft 5x leader to a size #18 or #20 has been sufficient. I always like to keep a few emergers, duns, cripples, and spinners in my box for these PMD hatches in case the fish are being really picky. Subsurface fishing with light nymph rigs using, caddis pupas, midges, and sow bugs. Ants, beetles, and hoppers have also been pretty active and fish have been taking them on the surface.

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.
