It’s been a great week on the river, classic spring weather with everything from wind, rain and snow and temps ranging from the high 30s to 70. And from the upper and lower Madison to the Missouri it’s been a mixed bag of midges and blue winged olives with a few San Juan worms and pink scuds thrown in along the way. The Big Hole, Yellowstone and Gallatin are currently muddy from warm weather and melting snow but wintry weather has set back in and more than likely they will drop and become fishable in the next day or two. In the meantime, there is plenty to keep an angler busy these days – blue winged olives are abundant on overcast days. And with the net warming trend, it’s possible that we will start to see some March Browns and caddis showing up on the Yellowstone….the window will be limited as the same weather that will prompt these hatches will get the snow melting again and the clarity to turn. Hot flip of the week? #18 Flashback Pheasant Tail, #18 black Zebra Midge, #16 Adams Para Wulff, #16 Improved BWO Sparkle Dun, # 10 San Juan Worm, #16 Diamond Soft Hackle.
