Montana April Fishing ReportApril 12, 2016
Fishing is definitely on the upswing around Southwest Montana. Good hatches of midges are often bringing trout to the surface on the right days. The spring baetis hatches are just getting started and will become much more important in the weeks to come. The streamer fishing has also been very good – not always a lot of action but for those willing to stay with the big bunny patterns some big browns are coming to the net. With the new Montana regulations in effect for 2016, the entire Upper Madison is now open for fishing, along with most of the small streams. These regulations give us some exciting new options for fishing in April and May this year.
