Montana Snowpack Update
I am still receiving many inquiries about predicted water conditions for the summer of 2012 so here is a current update as of February 23 for regional snowpack conditions across Southwest Montana:

Madison River Basin:  87% of normal
Missouri Headwaters:  89% of normal
Jefferson River Basin:  90% of normal
Yellowstone River Basin:  98% or normal
Bitterroot River Basin:  102% or normal

As you can see that flyfishing in Montana is going to be under more normal conditions versus the past two years! With March still ahead of us it looks like we will easily reach 100% snowpack conditions and even if we are a little short things are shaping up nicely for an awesome Montana fishing season.
