East Slope Outdoors :: Ski Rentals & Fly Fishing

Ok! With the annual state wide opener upon us, look foward to excellent fishing conditions on the upper Madison. The Gallatin River will be blown out off and on for the next few weeks so call the shop for up to date reports. We've had some fantastic conditions in the afternoon during Mother's Day Caddis mixed with unfishable days as well.  Look to the upper Madison and Hebgen Lake tributaries for the next couple weeks for the best fishing.  

Best spring patterns for nymphing:

#6-12  Knotty Girls's

#8-12 Beaded and non beaded Golden stones and Salmon Flies.

#12-16 AKA Prince

#12-16 Soft Hackle PT's

Trout Crack

Orange Egg's between the lakes and in the tributaries.

Caddis are out in full force now. Carry some darker bodied #12-14 elk hair's just in case!.......call the shop for current conditions or to book a trip with one of our experienced guides......406-995-4369.
