Still Fly Fishing Opportunities in Bozeman Area Fishing Report
By Kjel

Posted: August 20, 2012

Gallatin River: The Gallatin continues to fly fish well. Especially with hoppers, spruce moths, and even some caddis. There have been a few fishing eating tricos earlier in the day. With shorter days the fishing on the Gallatin should only get better and better as we reach September.

Madison River:  Fishing on the Madison as improved in the past week. We saw a nice drop in water temps and the fish have become more active. Hopper fishing along the entire Madison has started to pick up and the fish are keyed into them.  There are a few spruce moths out along the Madison as well.

Yellowstone: The fishing on the Stone has cooled off. The Yellowstone had been fishing great the past month but has really taken a hit the past week. Hoppers/attractors with a dropper will still produce fish but expect to work a little harder than you would of last week. The Stone bellow Livingston will be your best bet until the river turns back on. With cooler nights and shorter days the Yellowstone should really pick back up in the very near future.
