Fly Fishing Reports Excellent Spring Fishing Conditions

Early spring insect hatches are providing a kick start to the Montana fishing season. Guides at Montana Angler Fly Fishing are reporting a lot of activity on rivers across Southwest Montana as aquatic insects such as blue winged olive and March brown mayflies have been emerging from the aquatic nymph stage into full adults. “On several of our recent fly fishing trips in the area, we have seen strong emergences of the small baetis, or blue winged olive, mayfly,” stated outfitter Brian McGeehan. ” These mayflies are smaller than a dime but they can occur in great abundance. The water and air temperatures are often still cool this time of year which requires to spend several seconds floating on the surface of the water while their wings dry. They are very vulnerable at this time and the trout readily feed on them at the surface which provides for a pretty exciting scenario for anglers.”
