With the run off starting to crank up our seemingly limitless fishing options start to narrow a bit.  The Yellowstone and Gallatin rivers are now chocolate milk and will remain iffy to fish barring a real cold snap to hold back the snow melt.  While many anglers take the run off time to catch up on yard work, tie some flies, etc., we like to find the water that’s still producing.  Water doesn’t have to be gin clear to have fantastic fishing.  Through the turbulent weather we’ve had some great days staying close to the lodge.  The ponds have been fishing well on the ranch, but the Madison is still fishing great at times even being off color.  We’re also working on adding some exclusive spring creeks near the ranch to our guiding program.  Here are some pictures from the Madison the other day with our guest from South Carolina.
