Bozeman Fishing

Lower Madison

The lower Madison has been fishing well with the warming weather look for fish to be feeding more try throwing a worm or the classic flies such as a ray Charles, scud, or zebra midge. On calmer cloudy days watch for rising fish.

Upper Madison

With the last two colder days it slowed the streamer bite and we are back to nymphing to get into the most fish but as the weather warms back up look for the fishing to really take off again. Keep in mind that there will probably be some rising fish as well.

Gallatin River

The river has turned a little green which is great for masking your movement fish are still feeding on winter stones, but nymphing with caddis and worms has been good, as well as dead drifting a small streamer.

 

Butte Fishing:

With warmer temperatures ice continues to thin be careful.

Fisherman are reporting the fishing to be slowing everywhere this week. Clark Canyon has been tough fishing for the past ten days. A few fish are being caught out in the deeper water near the island, and a few fish on the Red Rock end.

Delmo Reservoir has been reporting a few fish for bait fisherman this past week, however, reporting smaller fish.

Georgetown Lake reports fishing to be best early morning hours but slowing to a crawl by 8AM. The Ruby Reservoir has slowed as well. Bait is proving to land a few fish but fish size and numbers are down.
