The Seasons

Madison River

Mid-April – Springtime is probably the best kept secret in Montana. All the rivers are low and clear prior to run off. You can expect lots of nymph and streamer fishing and surprisingly enough, dry flies as well. Caddis hatches provide some outstanding fishing throughout the spring. It’s a great time to experience Montana as it greens up and as aggressive fish attack your fly.

May – June is a transition month in Montana. The snow pack determines how the fishing will be this month. For the last three years June has been an exceptional time to fish. Salmon fly fishing typically begins at the end of June. Check with us to find out the status of the snow pack.

July – August – Lots of fun and sun. Late June and early July brings out the Salmon flies on the Madison and the Big Hole. July offers lots of great hatches. In August you can start thinking big hopper patterns fished on the surface. We typically fish 2 flies at a time with a dry fly and nymph combination. You can expect great weather and fishing conditions.

September – Montana is beautiful in the fall. We still use large dry attractor patterns on the surface in early September. There is lots of great action all month long. The weather is usually mild and sunny and you can expect all of the rivers to be low, clear, and fishing well.

October – WE LOVE OCTOBER You can expect awesome fishing from very aggressive fish. The weather can be some what unpredictable but the fish don’t mind. If you are a serious fisherman that enjoys fishing streamers then Oct. is the month for you.
