Montana Troutfitters is Bozeman’s oldest fly fishing shop Since 1978

Aug 28, 2023

The upper has cleared and is at normal visibility! Water is looking great above the west fork, and still pretty clear below. Flows at Cameron are sitting at 1300 CFS. Hopper fishing has been steadily improving. Nymphs, streamers, and dries have all also been getting action. Now that the weather has stabilized, we are seeing some awesome summer fishing!
