It’s mid April and in Southwest Montana we should be starting to see some March Brown mayflies particularly on the Yellowstone River. Fellow Montana Fly Fishing Guides, Eric Paramore, was doing some river scouting today and say a good hatch of March Browns on the lower Yellowstone River at the Otter Creek fishing access near Big Timber.
Eric Adams is pictured with a great looking Cutthroat trout caught east of Livingston, Montana last spring. All of us Montana anglers are looking forward to a repeat of that great hatch from last season.
The predicted weather for this week is looking good for encouraging our mayfly friends to start hatching in earnest, so as always we’ll keep you posted!
