One of the great things about flyfishing in Montana is how quickly things change. The challenge for fisherman in this area is being able to anticipate change and understand how it might affect the tremendous diversity of fishable water that this area offers. With that being said, expect some quick changes in the next few days as we ease out of run-off conditions and hit the summer wave train full force. I have been spending most of my time on the Henry’s Fork from the Box Canyon to St. Anthony. The entire river is in prime shape with a plethora of bugs to keep both fish and fisherman quite content. Green Drakes and Goldenstones in the lower river keep the big fish tuned to the surface, but don’t overlook PMD spinners and emerging caddis. The Firehole has slowly been warming up way to soon. But spinner falls in the morning and caddis in the evening can be quite entertaining. More to come soon, as things change and get fired up for our summer ride!!!

There’s something about a boy, a dog and a fish. Every time I post a photo like this on our Facebook page it generates a huge response! After all, what a perfect way to spend a day – on the water, fly rod in hand, dog at your side, enjoying another perfect day in paradise. This photo of Josh and Brady’s dog Jake was taken on the Madison River between Quake and Hebgen Lakes. The fishing there has been phenomenal this spring! Be sure to check out the Firehole Ranch Facebook page for many more photos throughout the year.
