The smaller streams around Montana are now open. Some of the freestone fisheries are running high and are tough to fish but others are just right, especially if they drain lower elevation watersheds. This is a great time to explore and fish local smaller waters and discover your own little gem.
The Month Ahead:
As run off subsides small stream fishing will become very, very good in late June and early July. Attractor dry flies are usually all that is needed.
Long Term Fishing Forecast:
Some smaller streams become pretty low and clear in August but they can still fish well with a stealthy approach and delivery.
