Spring Creeks Fishing Report 9/14/2020

Date: 09/14/2020

Current Conditions

The terrestrial action has pretty much dissipated to nothing. PMD's are still bringing a few fish to the surface but are not hatching in great numbers. Baetis and midges are out and both of these hatches will get better with cooler weather. Fish long leaders and light tipper (12 ft, 5x leaders) to get spooky fish to eat. Small nymph rigs have been the best way to catch fish. Sow bug imitations, small soft hackles, and midges should all get the job done.

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.
