As COVID-19 dominates our everyday lives, it never hurts to have hope for being able to go fishing again. When that time comes, fortunately much of the western United States is in good shape for fish-friendly summer-time streamflows.
Snowpack throughout Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming are looking great, as most river basins are sitting at, or above average, levels for this time of year. After the typical runoff that occurs in April and May, and once life returns to some form of normality, we can start to feel good about our summer season of fly-fishing the rivers and creeks of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.
With the uncertainty that COVID-19 has brought into our daily lives, we do know one thing: many of the rivers we love to fish should experience a normal season of streamflows and hatches.
Yellow Dog’s Jake Wells is available to assist with questions you may have about the possibility of a summer-time fly fishing trip.
