Montana Snowpack May 2013

Good snow numbers from across the state.

It is shaping up to be pretty good with regards to Montana snowpack May 2013. A good early season in October/November (2012) gave way to a sluggish mid-winter. However, as has been typical in the past several years colder than average temperatures and average precipitation has brought our Montana snowpack up to 100% in most drainages and slightly more (104%) on the Yellowstone River drainage.  As we all know more water means healthy, happy trout.

As far as run-off goes and when we’ll start fishing the Yellowstone River and surrounding rivers is anyone’s guess.  Tony Valeriano from our core Montana Fly Fishing Guides’ staff is renowned for  saying, “I’ll tell you more in October”. However, at this point with the weather forecast outlook and current snowpack we would make an educated guess of late June or early July.  Maybe just in time for Salmonflies!

As always we’ll keep you posted, but make sure to follow our Wade Deeper Blog and for weekly updates like us on Facebook.
