I've fished both.. it's been good, not as great for me as this article suggests, but no complaints.

Caddis on the Madison on Tuesday were in full force

And how is snow pack, early run off and prediction for flows in the upper Missouri watershed looking, Dave?

For a while they thought runoff was starting early.. most watersheds are below average, some more than others.. Jefferson (Beaverhead, BigHole, Jefferson rivers)is the worst, i think it showed 55% on the news the other night?

Dean (I think) had posted a great link to watershed figures.. I'll have to dig that up

It was 82 here yesterday.. it's snowing right now. go figure..

Sorry it was Larry:

These reports don't match up to what the news had the other day.. These look better
Good links:

That's quite a jump Dave - shorts to snowsuit in one day.

How's the Bighorn fishing now? I'll be heading out there in the middle of July.
& need an idea as what to expect. Flys, etc.

The Bighorn is at 2,000 CFS which is very low for this time of the year. It's going to be a low water year on the Horn.
