The freestone rivers have all been on the drop for over a week. Not a common scenario for mid may. The Flathead is green and has been fishable for a couple days. Everything else is pretty close too. Hopefully you had the chance to get out and enjoy the weather because it looks like we’re in for a gully washer for the next few days. The forecasted rain event is looking pretty substantial and will likely jack flows up just before the general opener this Saturday. Boo hoo, now you’ll have to go the Missouri or continue to fish the local lakes. You might get another day in tomorrow before the rain hits but the weather looks ugly. No risk, no reward.
