Montana spring creeks fishing report

Current Conditions:

Most of the important hatches have wrapped up for the summer on the spring creeks. The fall baetis is still a few weeks away. Terrestrials can still produce and ants or a small hopper are always worth trying either by prospecting or sight casting. Long leaders and perfect presentation is key to trick these wary foes. Hoppers don't produce a lot of fish but if you stick with them you can get a few surprises. Technical nymphing is still an option in the slots between weed beds. 

The Month Ahead:

The spring creeks will continue to be highly technical for a few more weeks but sill a very fun option for those looking for a challenge. 

Long Term Fishing Forecast:

October is a great time to fish the spring creeks, especially on bad weather days when there can be some good fall baetis dry fly action.
