Late Storms Helping Summer Flows for Montana

2 years ago

We wrote about the concerning warm weather in February and March this year. The low level snowpack was disapeering and we were worried about another year of low summer flows. The spring brought us some relief with storms pushing through in April. Just enough to feel some relief and show hope for the summer flows. Last week, all the rivers began to blow out in fine runoff fashion. Then we received a big cold front and the mountains were once again covered with fresh snow. The flows dropped and the last round of moisture is a huge bonus. We might have some early hatches but the soil is saturated and the riers will have good flows for the foreseeable future. It should be a great summer for fishing in Montana.
