Montana: Mid-Summer Fly Fishing Conditions and Streamflow Update

July 10, 2019
Montana Fly Fishing

After a cold and wet June, and a stormy 4th of July week, summer has finally come to us here at Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures headquarters in Bozeman, Montana. Gone are hatches of salmonflies and golden stones, but, here to stay for summer will be plenty of water in our rivers for a Montana fly fishing trip.

Blessed with an above average snowpack throughout most of our river drainages and coupled with our cold and wet spring, we are expecting a normal second half of the summer on our local rivers—Big Hole, Beaverhead, Missouri, Madison, Yellowstone, Bighorn, and others.

Our patience and persistence with the cold and the rain the past six weeks may now pay-off with trout-friendly streamflows and hungy fish. Without getting too far ahead of ourselves, we are hoping our homewaters will serve-up some special terrestrial fishing come August—our grasses and hayfields are thick and high, so there is plenty of habitat for grasshoppers…let’s just hope the trout respond accordingly.

For more information or to book a trip, please contact our Montana Program Director, Jake Wells.
