    Default Montana Creek Spring Rainbows

    I've always fished late summer and fall in the quartz with beads and done fairly well.
    My co-worker wants to go to Montana creek this weekend. I have no idea what to use for spring fishing, with no salmon in the river beads are about useless.

    Any tips would be great.
    Thanks

    I have done very well up there on bead headed prince nymphs.

    Try Nymphs, alvien, or smolt patterns

    Try a small white egg sucking leach, a small purple sparkle egg-sucking leach or an egg pattern fly like those sold at the Montana Creek Campground store. The small orange or white coneheads work really well there too. These flies are also tied by Custom Alaska Flies tied by Rose and sold at the Montana Creek Campground store work really well. They are behind the counter... go figure....
