Default Fishing in Montana/Yellowstone Area

My wife and I are planning a trip headed in this direction this summer/fall. Does anyone know how the fishing is in July, August and September? Also, looking for an idea of the temps there in those months.

Thanks for your help.

Dave

Welcome to the Forum. Hope you stick around.

Not an expert, but I have fished the area. In short, SW Montana in those months is absolutely fantastic. Seriously, pick a river, find a fly shop, ask them some questions, buy a few flies, and enjoy. Depending on the exact time you are there, you could hit Salmonflies, Stoneflies, Caddis, Hoppers, or all of the above. I have never seen more consistent hatches than I have in Montana. Fly fishing heaven in my opinion.

In the West Yellowstone are - Madison, Gallatin, and Yellowstone NP.

Temperatures: 80s in the day, 50s in the evening depending on where you are - it is the Rocky Mountains, so temps fluctuate quite a bit. Hard to predict.

Enjoy.

Gary

You really cant go wrong fishing any of those rivers in the late summer. It usually gets about 10 or 15 degrees cooler in September, so you might want to consider July or August. The yellowstone usually has its salmon fly hatch in July which is always a good bit of fun.
