Looks as if Montana, in contrast to us in California, has a large amount of snow. This year promises to be a great fishing year in the Rockies. Many places such as Reynolds Pass area ( click here for Montana Dept. of Transportation highway cameras ) near the Madison River below Hebgen still looks like a winter scene. Last year many of the Montana streams had closures due to low, warm water. Officials fear that flooding is of concern if the weather turns warm.

Here is a YouTube video about tying a popular fly for fishing under an indicator in Pyramid.
