On The Verge Of Run-Off

Pre-run off is upon us here in Montana. Some of the rivers are completely blown out, some are holding strong and either way they all have more water in them then 3-4 weeks ago. Rainbows are starting to wrap up their spawning in most places, but others are just getting going. Water temperature plays a huge role for when these fish spawn so I would assume the first few weeks in May will have active fish spawning in certain water ways. Fly selection is pretty simple this time of year, egg, worm and a RL is usually the ticket. Slowly, fish will start transitioning into a BUG diet once the water calms down. The mothers day caddis hatch should be starting in a few days. That brings out the dry fly enthusiast in all of us. I'm hoping the Lower Madison holds strong with clarity so I can experience it like I did last year. Only time will tell.
