Fishing Conditions

June 23, 2017

The PMD's are going strong after the warm week. The Caddis hatch is going strong, the later in the day you are out the more you will see flying. The portion of the Gallatin in the Park is totally fishable, the water is clear and nymphs are fishing really well. Over the weekend the fish were gorging on nymphs. Bring some stoneflies, worms, caddis and mayfly nymphs. Keep the stoneflies dark and the caddis and mayflies flashy. There was a big Grizzly this weekend about two miles downstream of the Fawn Pass trailhead. Be alert when your fishing in ths area and bring your bear spray. Grayling Creek has been in great shape if you are looking to fish some smaller water. The firehole, madison, and gibbon are still fishable options as well. The gibbon may be the best option with your favorite attractor dries or nymphs.
